    The best application for Windows seems to be SnagIT an it cost money. An equally pleasant and more pleasantly still, free! one is Faststone - try a google on Faststone. :)

    Another solution would be to use the on-screen keyboard: All Programs - Accessories - Accessability - On Screen Keyboard (I think..?)

    However, you'll only want to use this when you want to crop a certain section of a screenshot and not have the entire desktop in there, otherwise the onscreen keyboard will be visible in your screenshot.

    I use input remapper. By default it's fn+eject. There also is a free screenshot program for windows I've used before, but I can't seem to remember what it's called. If I remember, I'll post it.

    This Works for me... The Goof

    :D

    Y'all could do the following:

    [COMMAND] + [SHIFT] + 3


    OR


    [COMMAND] + [SHIFT] + 4 + [SPACEBAR] + (Use the mouse pad and button to select contents)
