no "print screen" key - any alternative?


Hello: because I use a KVM & a mac-type KB, there does not seem to be a "print screen" button. I have tried f12-15 & with the alt key also. Is there an alternative to capturing the screen when there is no "print screen" key for XP? Thanks.

Hi...

Microsoft has a built in "On-screen Keyboard"...I use it all the time on my Laptop for the Numerical Keypad as I have a couple programs at work that requires a num pad. Anyways there is a "PSC" key that you click for Print Screen.

I can't remember where I found it but here is the actual post...

Windows XP comes with a built in on screen keyboard. Basically a graphic of a keyboard comes up and acts like your keyboard, you can use your mouse to hunt and peck around. What uses does this have and what did I use it for? Well, it's good for people with disabilities, where it would be easier to use a mouse than trying to type or it's great to use when your keyboard goes loco on you. Yes, we've all had our keyboard go nuts. Here is how you launch it:

- Click "Start" button
- Click on "RUN"
- Enter\type "OSK" (without quotes)

The keyboard comes on

You can also create a shortcut to the "On-Screen Keyboard", because if your keyboard should go out on you, it would be handy to have it. All you do to create the shortcut is to:

- Right click on the desktop
- Click the new shortcut button
- Enter\type OSK, click next twice, and there you have it.

Other than redefining your keyboard (which could cause other problems) I'd say a third party program would be the solution...

Have a look at Gadwin PrintScreen for capturing screens or active windows (and other features). The default hot key for this program is "print screen" but can be redefined.

Perhaps not the best solution but a solution non-the-less.

You could also use the free "Screen Capture" software "ScreenHunter"
