    How to printscreen without a mac-keyboard?

    I have to make some printscreens for school, but my Mac-keyboard isn't working anymore since some cola felt on it. I had a 'normal' logitech keyboard too and I'm using that one now.

    The problem is I can't make printscreens or get the dashboard etc. with it. How do I make a printscreen without using the keyboard?


    Sorry for my bad English...

    Hmm not working. I can't do a simple copy paste either. Maybe my keyboardsettings aren't right? How do I change that? :p

    You can always use Grab? It should be in Applications -> Utilities.

    We have a logitech keyboard too and it requires a driver to properly work.
    Apple - Downloads - Drivers - Logitech Control Center

    The Mac's keyboard settings are in System Preferences>Keyboard

    The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

    With a non-Mac keyboard:
    1. Windows-Shift-3 will capture the whole screen, saving the pic to MacHD or other user-specified location.
    2. Windows-Shift-4 gives you cross-hairs with which to select all or part of what you're trying to capture, again saving as in 1 above.
    Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

    I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
