Print screen for Remote Desktop

Feb 20 2013 12:00AM by Himani   

Earlier on Beyondrelational I read a tip, for the same topic. combination of keys Shift + Print screen, allows us to take screen shot of Remote Desktop. But recently I faced problem using these keys. It allowed taking print screen only once. Every other time, it comes up with the first screen shot i took. Solution I found was : Start menu -> Accessories -> Accessibility -> On-Screen Key board. On the keyboard that pops up, use the keys : alt + printscreen + enter. This has solved my issue, I can take as many screen shots as I want for Remote desktop

  • Why wouldn't you use the Snipping Tool that ships within Windows? This way you can do screen capture from within the RDP session, outside the RDP session, or both.

  • @Mark, I had to use this work around, because, print screen was disabled on RDP and also snipping tool was not installed.
