    I have been away for a week and left my iMac (10.12.6) on, once back I noticed 5 files on the desktop all named LWScreenShot taken one minute away from each other; my family has access to the computer but none of them any reason to try and log in, does anybody know what these screenshots are and how do they get created if nobody is actually in front of the computer?

    I know this might sound paranoid but I fear somebody might have try to access the computer

    Grazie and happy Easter

    "LWScreenShot" are the screenshot made in the login window. So someone turned on your computer and made some screenshots before logging in.

    Seems weird to me cause the only one having access to my place whilst I was away are my mum (needless to say she and a computer are like clams and parmesan) and my sis who might have attempted to log in but she doesn't know at all how to take a screenshot, she doesn't even know how to create a new folder on a mac, go figure...

    Do incorrect login attempts automatically create a screenshot?
