How to take a Screenshot in Windows or Mac

Double click on the file remap. I have the following which work and are recognized by a PC Though Claudiu's remap.

Thanks and Mahalos! Johnathan Several of these posts talk about using FF15 keys on a Mac. Am I the only person on the planet that has this version of Mac laptops or what??! This is crazy -- and not at all helpful to me in solving the problem. Print Screen Key on a Mac. It is found in the Accessories folder. If you don't see it there in Vista, you may need to turn on the Tablet PC options. Why this useful screen capture program is tied into Tablet PC options is unclear to me. The Snipping Tool does screen capture of selected areas, the active window, and the entire desktop.

Hope this helps!

Just what I was looking for, with no extra screen clutter or need for the mouse. With On-Screen Keyboard, I have to keep the top row of keys with "PrtScn" visible, then have to click it with the mouse and include it in the screen shot. AppleKeys2 works! Use the F14 key on the Mac keyboard. I have an iMac running bootcamp and Windows XP. Using a Mac keyboard, I have found that hitting F14 will capture an entire screen. It works just like the print screen button on a PC keyboard.

Someone said that the F13 key does this, but it does not. Use the F14 key. AppleKeys2 - Go to http: What would [almost certainly] work with the right settings: No combination of FF15, 3 nor 4 with any combination of "meta" keys such as "Shift" "Control" "Option" - the "Alt" key "Command" - the "Apple" or "4-leaf clover" key that maps to the "Windows"?

To summarize what works and what doesn't I tried to screen shot an excel sheet and it just doesn't pick up anything. Thought I forgot the key stroke. Drove me crazy for about 5 minutes but then I tried just capturing the desktop and that worked find. Tried capturing half a dozen other things and it worked just fine but it won't capture anything when excel is in the picture.

This is a bit of a pain but it worked Go to start, in the search bar type "On-Screen Keyboard".

Run the program and it has a PrtScn key. Click on it with your mouse and it works. Found your answer! It's been so long since I'd used a PC that I'd forgotten to use paint. I didn't feel like downloading yet another piece of software, or trying to scrounge up a different keyboard to use for 2 seconds with my MacBook Pro, and the onscreen keyboard wouldn't work with the software that I'm using which I needed a printscreen of either.

In programs, Accessories, you will find a utility called Snipit - Win7. You can save it to your taskbar. Either you want to discuss something with your team, give a tutorial guide on a process, or just toss some gossip around a conversation you had with someone, screenshots are the best way to do all that. And when you quickly want to take and share screenshots , the best way to do so is through keyboard shortcuts. Keyboard shortcuts add a lot to your productivity , but only if you know which ones to use to do what.

Windows natively allows you to capture the entire screen or the active screen without the help of third-party software. As compared to Windows, macOS offers more options when it comes to screen-capturing. With macOS, you can capture the entire screen, the active screen, or any pre-determined region. Move and drag the crosshair cursor on the region you want to take screenshot of and it will be saved on your desktop.

You can hold Shift or Option key while dragging to change how you make the selection. This will turn your cursor from crosshair to camera icon.
