Slow news day huh, but i found print screen on a macbook pro for win 7(bootcamp) woot!

printscreen of apples bootcamp commandsYeah folks it was genius, i searched google haha. The problem with the macbook pro is that f keys run out at 12, and print screen is something like 13 on regular keyboards. So where is the magic to make this happen? embarresingly my first stop was a forum where everybody said option f4, which equates to alt f4, which closes the active window in the Microsoft operating environment. So anyway i backed out, dissapointed a full page thread didn’t have the answer and there she was, apple support, worth a try i thought. BOOM! mac daddy ahoy hoy, it’s the freeeeaakin’ answer. fn shift f11. Simples :D. Now i don’t have to switch computers just to get printscreen, and before you ask, no i can’t use the snipping tool, i wanted to show pop up menus for a guide in the appendix of the project documentation. The apple support page is http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1220. Oh and to copy the current window to clipboard, i believe that is fn shift alt f11.

Now, if only there was a way the pause button will pause itunes when its not the active window……
