    Hello! You have to press

    Forward Delete in Windows - Fn+Delete
    Print Screen in Windows - F14
    Backspace in Windows - Delete
    Insert in Windows - Help

    If you don't have the F14 key, press FN+Shift+F11

    Good luck!

    Edit: Here are more function keys in BootCamp ^_^

    For Windows 7, you can also try using the Start->All Programs -> Accessories -> Snipping Tool. Youn right click on the Snipping Tool and "Pin to Task Bar" to make it easier to access.
    Or Run...(windows key+R) and enter SnippingTool.exe
    Or you can just press the windows key and start typing Snipping Tools.

    Screenshot in Bootcamp

    Hi! I have a MacBook with Windows 7 Home Premium on the Bootcamp side. I am trying to take a screen shot on my MacBook keyboard on the Windows 7 side--I have tried every combination of commands on every Apple board, and it is not working for me, nor do I have the Snipping tool. I can do it the old-fashioned way and simply print the item I wanted to share and then mail it to the person, but emailing a screen shot sure would save time. HELP! Again, tried the fn+Shift+F11, fn+Shift+Option+f11, Command+Shift+3 (which brings up the Windows Media Player), and Command+Shift+4 (which brings up the WinZip Self-Extractor). Any other ideas for taking a screenshot on a MacBook keyboard using the Windows 7 Home Premium side? Thank you.

    You have to paste the image into an image editing program and save it. Windows does not automatically create a screen cap like OS X does.

    Follow this workflow to get your screen capture:
    1) print screen (look above to find the right button combo)
    2) open MS Paint
    3) paste (ctrl+v)
    4) save the image

    Alternatively, you can use a third party tool like Gyazo to streamline this.
