In Java, it can be done like this: 

WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
driver.get("Your-URL");
File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
// Now you can do whatever you need to do with it, for example copy somewhere
FileUtils.copyFile(scrFile, new File("yourPath.png"));

//for maven-selenium automation setup

//use this if FilleUtils is not working

//add this in pom.xml file

<dependency>
    <groupId>commons-io</groupId>
    <artifactId>commons-io</artifactId>
    <version>2.6</version>
</dependency>

//on your script use this code below

File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
// Now you can do whatever you need to do with it, for example copy somewhere
Files.copy(scrFile, new File("yourPath.png"));

@Msizi, thanks for this code, but why we have to add Dependencies to the POM.xml file?
Because "FileUtils" class keep giving an error so i opted for the "Files" class which required the "commons-io" dependency to be added
Okay, thanks Msizi for explaining the needful.
