    I just installed boot camp and windows on my new iMac. Everything seems to be working great. I noticed, however, that on the mac keyboard there is not an "insert" button or a "num lock" button. Is there a link or manual to figure out which buttons I can use for the windows apps?

    I *think* you can use Help for Insert, and Clear for Num Lock. Failing that, you could use the on-screen keyboard (under Accessories IIRC) if you're desperate.

    Better question, how do you take a screenshot. In Windows, it's simply Printscreen, yet there's no printscreen on a Mac keyboard. :(

    Mac = Printscreen Heaven

    You're going to love this.

    Macs don't just print screen, they let you print screen copy, print screen save to a file, print partial screen copy (you draw a box), and print partial screen save to a file.

    Look in your Apple Keyboard shortcuts, or Google them. My favorite is Command + Shift + 4. That is the last of the options listed above.

    Try it out!
