In order to help troubleshot some issues, the desktop software has a logging feature that creates a detailed log that can be sent to the desktop developers. This article will show you how to use the logging feature if you are asked to do so.

If you are encountering an error while ScreenSteps is starting up then you need to turn on logging when ScreenSteps launches. You will see the following dialog. Click the Turn On button.
While holding down the SHIFT key, click on the Help menu
If you encounter an error while using ScreenSteps then you can turn on logging from the Help menu. Just hold down the SHIFT key while clicking on the Help menu and a Turn on Logging... option will appear.
