I'm using version 2.1.0 of Remote Desktop Client on my MacBook Pro with Mac OS X Snow Leopard (version 10.6). How do I use the
cmd call to simulate a print screen on the remote system?
Alt+Page Up replaces Alt+Tab to “tab” through running applications in the RDP window.
Alt+Page Up+Numpad + takes a screen print of the remote desktop (just like using PrintScrn on a local computer).
Alt+Page Up+Numpad - takes a screen print of the active window inside the RDP window (just like using Alt+PrintScrn on the desktop).
Here's an alternative solution to Oliver's answer for those that have those "half" mac keyboards without number pads,
From within the RDP Windows screen, Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Use > On-Screen Keyboard.
This onscreen keyboard has all of the keys you need including Print Screen.
if you click on the RDC menu at top of screen on OSX, click on preferences, then keyboard, you should have a Mac shortcut of option f4 (default) i actually remapped mine to option 1 (as i couldn't get option f4 to work on the standard bluetooth keyboard, but obviously you can map to whatever you like
I believe what you're looking for is Fn+Option+F4. This gives me a "print screen" command inside the Windows RDP session to trigger application like SnagIt.
Pressing Fn gives you the straight function keys inside the RDP session, or at least this has worked for my MBP keyboard.
Easy way: PDF what you want a shot of then use "take a snapshot" from the pdf and just hit paste where you need it. Saves it to the PC clipboard thru your mac.
Your welcome :-)
You may find that your RDS admin has provided a separate snipping tool to provide this function - my session certainly has this. Checking the app, it seems to be part of the Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard server release.
Faster alternative solution / remote machine is Win7: on remote machine, open Start menu (hit cmd on Mac keyboard), type "osk" (wihout quotes), make sure "osk.exe" is highlighted, hit Enter on Mac keyboard. (osk.exe = On Screen Keyboard).
In the Citrix remote session on a mac, move your mouse to the top of the screen. The Citrix menu bar will drop down. Click in this order,
Devices->Keyboard->Send Key->Print Screen
If you use the windows on screen keyboard as in a previous answer it will include a photo of the keyboard. If you do the citrix menu option it just takes the entire screen the way you want.
Yet another alternative is the following.
If you have the Send to OneNote tool (part of MS Office) running on your remote Windows machine, then an easy solution is to hit
S, select the region you would like to copy and subsequently click
Copy to Clipboard.
This has the benefit of selecting only a part of the screen.
Press Windows+Space (⊞ WinSpace). Alternatively, move the mouse to the top of the screen to bring up the MacOS system ribbon (Mojave here) and click the looking glass icon 🔍 on the right. Observe the transparent input field in the middle of the screen.
Type "screenshot" and click the "screenshot.app" result. The screenshot app will launch, offering to select the screen area to snapshot.
The shutter button resides in the bottom of the screen, in a transparent block of large icons.
