    Yeah, um...how can I print screen in WinXP with my Apple Bluetooth Keyboard? I've tried all the standard unused FKeys and the like, but no cigar.

    To do "Print Screen/Screen Capture" using Apple Keyboard:

    * F14 = Screen Capture the whole screen
    * alt/option + F14 = Screen Capture the active window


    Maybe those might work.. :rolleyes:

    SnapNDrag will let you do this. It's a very handy utility - I use it to capture images of particular windows most of the time, but it will do full screenshots as well.

    And it's free. :D

    Oh, duh, sorry about that. Unless you're in Parallels, in which case it'd still work.

    For Windows using quirky keyboards, I tend to enjoy a little application called Capture. Lightweight (~210kb, I believe), the dev is a great guy and best of all it's free. You can also define a hotkey, and define different output options.

    That said, the PrntScrn key is usually mapped to the F13 key. EDIT: I stand corrected. I was looking at my old black-key Pro Keyboard. It is indeed F14 on the white Pro Keyboards. :)
