I don't know which button it is, it's usually the print screen button right?... Can someone help?
press print screen then go into paint or some other image program and press ctrl + v and you have a screen capture.
I don't have a print screen key on my MacBook. That's what I was asking, is it one of the function keys?
If you are using parallels then you should be able to make parallels an inactive window and have it running os x and use the cmd + shift + 3 to do a screenshot. But it sounds like you're using bootcamp so then I don't know, an external keyboard would work if you have one.
There are numerous free screen capture utilities for windows that work with the click of a mouse (no print screen button required). A search of version tracker (the windows section) should help. There's one i've used a bit, but I don't remember the name.
Maybe use a digital camera!!! Ha ha!!
This utility adds a right click and Print SCreen and numerous other missing buttons.
I agree with iBookG4User that Use Parallels product cmd + shift + 3 or run the Grab app to capture your screen.
For boot camp, what about a USB Windows keyboard to give you that PrtSc key.
Download something like Snag-It. Works a treat.
Screen Capture On Windows
No new downloads or remappings needed. Use the On-Screen Keyboard (All Programs->Accessories->Accessibility Hold down the shift key on the "regular" keyboard and press the Print Screen (psc) on the On-Screen Keybord. Works for me.
This Is The Right Way:
Cmd (apple) + Shift +3 :
Print All Your Screen To A File Which Will Be Saved On Your Desktop
Cmd(apple) + Shift + 4 :
You Can Drag A Window To Save It To A Jpg File On Your Desktop
Or Press Space To Select A Working Window To Be Printscreened
Hope This Help
Have Fun !!
Old thread, but here's a great solution.
Start Button > Run > osk.
Use the On Screen Keyboard.
Although there are some paid versions that add features, the free version of Screenhunter for Windows works great, with all the features you'd expect, plus some extras. My favorite is that you can decide whether or not to include the mouse pointer.
The best of all, on either platform, is Vista's built-in Snipping Tool. I could go on at length, but the best description is in this article at Lifehacker.
It really is amazing.
If you are using 2 displays... how does one get print screen or Snipping Tool to just capture one display instead of both?
Print Screen Button in Boot Camp is fn + Shift + F11 using a Mac Keyboard
Yeah I figured that... I want it to capture only one display and not both. How can this be done using either the snipping tool or print screen? Is there a way to select only the display that you want to capture?
