I'm running both a mac and pc side-by-side with a KVM switch, prefering the mac keyboard over my nearly rotting pc keyboard (it's been through a lot, heh).

Aside from that sob story, how can I get my mac keyboard to send a "print screen" command to my pc?

I've tried the solution offered at http://www.macwindows.com/keytips.html but it didn't work for me. I'm running Windows XP.

Thanks!

    A quick and dirty solution without remaping your keys through the Registry is to use the Microsoft "On-Screen Keyboard".

    On your Windows PC...

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Accessibility > On-Screen Keyboard

    The "psc" key is the Print Screen key. The downside of this solution is that you have to use the mouse to click the on-screen keyboard and therefore cannot capture screens where the mouse pointer must be positioned elsewhere.
