Not sure I understand your question... are you asking how to take a screen shot of your homescreen?

Ah ok, got it. Yes, that is done by editing the xml file to place the plugin for the shortcut icons in different places on the homescreen. Basically, you're just changing the placement of it by editing the code for it.

The xml file you would be looking for depends on which homescreen you're currently using. For example, if you're using the Smartphone homescreen, the xml file is called cingular.home.xml (this file is located in Application Data\Home)

[make sure to uncheck hide system/hidden files under Tools>Options before you use the Explore function to browse the device's folders & files]

- copy the file to your computer so you can make your changes/edits and then copy it back over to your device

- rename the

Smartphone to whatever title you want; for example: Smartphone with changes

[tip: if you want to change the placement of the shortcuts, you would look for the plugin for shortcuts and change the x, y coordinates accordingly]

Here's a couple links with xml tutorials to give you an introduction to xml editing:
