Print screen key in VMware Fusion

Sunday, March 16, 2008 by Thomas L

As you might or might not know, I use VMware Fusion under Mac OS X Tiger to run a Vista install and code .NET. As I sat and wrote a blog post, I found I needed to dump what was on my screen, and started looking at my keyboard around where the Print Screen key normally is. But as I use a mac keyboard, the print screen key was nowhere to be found. Via the VMware Fusion FAQ, it turns out that I can press the F13 key to send a Print Screen keypress to Windows.

Using Alt-F13 (or, since I use a mac keyboard, Apple-F13), does a normal Print Screen on the active window only.

Hmm, I only wonder how I'd do if I didn't have access to my full size mac keyboard (which only contains the F1-F12 keys).

If you only have a laptop keyboard, like I do, you can use the SHIFT + APPLE + 3 combination instead of APPLE + F13.
