    Hi everyone. I use my MacBook Pro to RDC to my company's desktop and laptop (both MS). However, I am trying to capture a screen shot from my MS desktop right now. On a MS keyboard, I would have pressed CTRL + Insert(PRT).

    However, my MAC keyboard obviously does not have the same keys.

    I know how to take screen shots in MAC OS but this is a Windows screen shot through MAC RDC. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    [Command] + [Shift] + [3] <- Whole screen
    [Command] + [Shift] + [4] <- Select the area to capture

    EDIT: Reread it, I believe RDC would have an option to screenshot in the menus somewhere.

    FWIW I tend to use Snipping Tool to avoid needing any keystrokes for W7 boxes.

    It might help to know exactly what kind of screenshot you are trying to take. Is there a problem with the Mac screenshots you are trying to avoid?
