Hi Phxheat13, welcome to the Eight Forums.
I have searched an answer for this, found nothing. I use a third party solution Fast Stone Capture for this. It costs about $20 but up to version 5.3 it was and is free.
FS Capture official site: FastStone Screen Capture - The Best Screen Capture Software
Free FS Capture v. 5.3: Old Version of FastStone Capture 5.3 Download - OldApps.com
Even with FS Capture there's an undocumented trick to get screenshots from Start Screen or Windows App screen, I found it out accidentally:
When on Start Screen or on a Windows App, click the appropriate keyboard shortcut to launch FS Capture
Now bring pointer to the upper left corner where you normally would get the list of open but suspended apps and click the mouse button:
If you selected Capture Rectangle Region (keyboard shortcut CTRL + PRINT SCR) you will now see the FS Capture crosshair and can capture selected rectangle region:
If you selected Capture Window (keyboard shortcut ALT + PRINT SCR) you will now see the red window selection borders surrounding your Start Screen or Windows App screen. Pressing the mouse button now captures the Start Screen or App window and brings you to editor where you can modify and save your screenshot:
Easy and fast. If you go for the free version 5.3, it need to be run in compatibility mode otherwise the editor will not be able to save your modifications. Set compatibility to Windows XP:
Hopefully this helps you at least a bit.
