    Question Print screen equivalent for iMac keyboard?
    Is there a "prt scn" equivalent function key on an Apple keyboard? I have the Apple keyboard with the small white keys, it's about 1 year old.
    Thanks

    Welcome to mac-forums,

    There is no dedicated button, but there is a dedicated combination of buttons...
    Hold down "cmd+shift+3", it will take a screen shot and save the file onto the desktop too.

    Hope this helps.

    To add to my previous comment, combination "cmd+shift+4" gives you a crosshair to take a selection shot, or when you have the crosshair press the space button for a window selection shot.

    How do you take a screen shot using a Mac keyboard when bootcamped into Windows?

    Edit to my above post the combination with "alt" in takes a screenshot of the foreground window!
