If you’ve ever had a Windows process or application you were trying to document using screenshots, chances are that you’ve used the Alt+Print Screen shortcut to capture a single window to the clipboard. If you have Windows running on a virtual environment like VMWare or VirtualBox under Mac OSX, you can still use the print screen key. Here’s how:
- Go to System Preferences
- Click on Keyboard
- Check the “Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys” box on the Keyboard tab.
- Use the F13 key as your Print Screen key, and the option key (alt) for your alt. For example Alt+Print Screen would translate to option+F13
