I've seen this question: http://superuser.com/questions/132961/print-screen-key-of-windows-on-mac

But it doesn't help me.

I had a normal windows keyboard for my PC (WinXP) but the E key broke so I used an old Mac keyboard I found in the office which works well. It basically looks like this:

alt text

How do I print screen? There is no FN button.

Maybe you need to look at setting up an AutoHotkey macro and bind it to whatever key combination you fancy. I don't use AutoHotkey myself, but I'm sure someone on here can help produce a script for you. –  DMA57361 Sep 15 '10 at 9:05

Use a third-party product : My favorite is the free Gadwin PrintScreen.

Among many other options, you can also define your favorite shortcut key.

You may use this alternative way to press PrintScreen

  1. Download On-Screen Keyboard Portable from PortableApps.com (Portable, Free)
    http://portableapps.com/apps/accessibility/on-screen_keyboard_portable

  2. Extract and execute it.

  3. Click "psc" botton with mouse.


Alternatively, a screen capture freeware can do the task easily (as well as enhance productivity). With this tool, you can define custom hotkey or click the menu for screen capturing.

FastStone Capture 5.3 (Last Free Version, Portable) is my personal favourite. http://www.aplusfreeware.com/categories/mmedia/FastStoneCapture.html

The problem with using an on-screen keyboard is that it might get in the way of the screenshot? –  DMA57361 Sep 15 '10 at 9:04
    
Oh yes, why I didn't think of that. It will be still useful for capturing a window (Alt-PrintScreen), or only part of the whole screen is needed. Alternate solution added. Thanks! –  wilson Sep 15 '10 at 9:11
  • Download screen-shot utility .
  • It will run in your system try. Give it the Hotkey Alt+0 (or any other as you prefer).
  • Whenever you press the Hotkey it displays a message "Screen Captured" press on OK.
  • All your captured screen will be automatically saved in your Desktop.
  • You may configure it as per your needs

I can't tell for sure, but if only the position is interpreted correctly by windows, it's this one:

alt text

Windows won't map keys based on their location on the keyboard. –  MaQleod Sep 15 '10 at 8:38
    
Those three keys are the F14-16 keys...I'm not sure if they would be mapped to Print/Scroll/Break. That depends on what keycode they're sending. –  Bobby Sep 15 '10 at 8:46
