Warning ❌ 🚫

Issue :

If the user takes multiple shots, he only gets “ScreenShot00001.png”. How to get the recent file name?

Fix :

In order to solve this, run a loop that will check if the file with the same name exists or not.

What this loop should do :

If ScreenShot00001.png exists, go for the next number ScreenShot00002.png.

If that already exists, search for ScreenShot00003.png.

If it still doesn't exist, then the previous number (ScreenShot00002.png) was the latest screenshot that was taken and saved. So just use that file name to download.
