    My Mac is MBA. I am using this as a Windows machine as well. On Windows, what key should be used as Windows' "Print Scrn" key to capture the whole screen or the active windows screen?

    If you want to capture the whole screen:


    If you want to capture an area:


    Then you can either select an area with your mouse, or press space to select one window.

    ExnomenDei, blevins321;

    Thanks for your replies. The reply by blevins321 is the answer to my question. I appreciate ExnomenDei's reply because I did not know how to do screen capture on OS X.

    Thank you again.
