When I touch the left side of the screen at start screen I get the list of all apps I have used last time, but it seems to be impossible to make a screenshot of this list at start screen.

I've tried the following shotcuts:

Win + Print


with no success.

Edit: Crazy, but it seems to be possible to make this screenshot if I'm on the classical Windows Desktop

Win + Print saves the screenshot in picture library in folder Scrrenshot did you check that? – avirk Nov 25 '12 at 15:24
@avirk Yes, I have checked, but the screenshots made on modern start screen don't include the left side bar. – alisia123 Nov 25 '12 at 15:30 are you talking about that? – avirk Nov 25 '12 at 15:34
@avirk Yes, exactly. – alisia123 Nov 25 '12 at 15:42
I'm able to take screenshot of it with win+print and print as well. Also I tried with GreenShot and its really easy for me to get the shot of the left bar. – avirk Nov 25 '12 at 15:45

Greenshot will help you to take screenshot of left bar at start screen with Print button.
