    Hello all.

    I was wondering if anybody knows of a screenshot application (similar to Snapz Pro perhaps) that is VMware Fusion aware, and that can pick out windows to capture inside a guest OS? I make my living working and documenting in Windows virtually via VMware Fusion on a macbook and always have this requirement. Running a Windows app within the guest OS such as Snagit isn't favorable since what I do requires the least amount of software installed in the guest OS (i.e. a "clean state").

    Any ideas?

    Thank you for your time!

    I don't know about Fusion, but with Parallels, you can CMD-Tab to Finder and then simply press CMD-Shift-3. It takes a snapshot of the Windows screen

    Put VMware into Unity mode. Then, press one of the keyboard shortcuts listed here to take the screen shot, depending on exactly what you want captured.
