Sorry, that would require operating system specific hacking. Java is not designed to do that. You will need to look elsewhere - try a Google search.

Incidently - adding "very urgent..plz help me" to your title does not do a thing and just takes up bandwidth.

i think what you are trying to accomplish has some enormous security risks. You would then be able to capture usernames and passwords that users type. Hopefully, this is not what you intend...
