In order to take a screenshot of the TouchUI on the router, you need to access the Router via telnet protocol. See: SSH Access to Almond+

Gain SSH access to the router. You can create the screenshot with the following command: screenshot /www/img.bmp


This will save the Screenshot to your router at the filename you specify . All screenshots will be in BMP format, and should be stored in the /www folder so that you can retrieve the image using your Web Browser. To retrieve the image, simply point your Web browser to http://Almond+-IP/img.bmp. By default your Almond+ lives at If you Almond is using this IP address, you can download the image by browsing to Save the image to your computer.

Alternatively, you can plug in a USB storage device into the Almond+ and go to /mnt/usb/device_name and simply do screenshot img.bmp and the files will the saved automatically to your USB storage device. The advantage of doing this is that you can simply unplug the USB storage device from the Almond+ and plug it in to your PC and access the files directly this way. For multiple screenshots this is by far the easiest way of doing things.
