I'm running VirtualBox on a Mac, using OS-X as the host and Windows 7 as the guest SO. I need to capture a screenshot in Win7 using PrintScreen or ALT+PrintScreen combination. How do I emulate PrintScreen key on Mac?

You can either use the onscreen keyboard, or a third party app like greenshot(free) or you can use scancodes.
