    I have a feeling this is a MAC OSX shortcut and not hardware dependant but you could try

    Hold down Apple key ⌘ + Shift + 3

    That's an OSX shortcut yes. Not a feature of the keyboard

    Hi

    I can't remember the exact key, but its one of the function keys - F14 I think (Sorry, I don't have an apple keyboard near me at the moment. I'm fairly sure its the middle F key, of that cluster of three, to the right of the main keys (Hope that make sense).

    seeing as you are using windows why not just get a free screen grab utility

    Mirek's Free Windows Software

    That or re assign keyboard shortcuts - am sure thats easy enough to do

    Or plug it into a Mac and then use the keyboard shortcut. Works like a charm for me

    If you are doing training tutorials or even any other documentation and you have access to a mac (it may also work as well on a windows machine), i usually run Windows in a virtual machine and use OS X screen grab tool as per the keyboard shortcut above. This results in good quality screen grabs with text that can usually be read
