I am using C#. I am taking screenshot, but it returns blank. It works on FF and Chrome. It works over grid as well. However while working with IE, either on same PC or remote PC, it returns blank image.

using OpenQA.Selenium;

using OpenQA.Selenium.IE;

using OpenQA.Selenium.Remote;

using OpenQA.Selenium.Support.UI;


static void Main(string[] args)


   IWebDriver NewDriver = null;

   using (NewDriver = new RemoteWebDriver(new Uri("http://localhost:4444/wd/hub"), DesiredCapabilities.InternetExplorer()))


      if (NewDriver != null)



         NewDriver.Manage().Window.Size = new Size(1804, 1096);

         Screenshot ss = ((ITakesScreenshot)NewDriver).GetScreenshot();

         ICapabilities capabilities = ((RemoteWebDriver)NewDriver).Capabilities;

         ss.SaveAsFile(@"C:\Path\123.png", ImageFormat.Png);

you may want to try removing below line

//NewDriver.Manage().Window.Size = new Size(1804, 1096);

maximize your browser instead.
