    I would like to add a print screen


    I would like to add a print screen, or basic copy-paste function of the keyboard Print Screen or Prt Scr key that used to be found in accessories on some earlier versions to Metro Start, sounds easy but I have not found it. It's nice to be able to capture an error message and copy it to one of these posts.

    I havn't tried it, but doesn't Alt Print Screen do it - or simply Print screen for the whole windows?
