How does one take a screenshot on a PC if the keyboard doesn't have one of those handy "PrntScrn" keys?

ScreenRip32 works - you can take a shot of a screen, window or any user-defined area on the screen. Plus, it's free.

the free "gadwin print screen" lets you assign keys for screen captures.

I use Paint Shop Pro, but simply because I have it and it has that feature built in. A bit expensive for just screen shots. You piqued my curiosity though: what PC doesn't have a PrntScrn keys? It's been part of the standard keyboard since the original PC.

I'll third Gadwin PrintScreen. Someone posted a link to it here recently and I've been loving it since.

Free solution that doesn't require special software. I tested it, the print screen key works.

shepd: I was thinking about that trick too, but then how do you get a screen shot without the OSK window in it?
