First time posting here although I’ve used this site as a resource for quite some time now. We have begun deploying xenith thin clients for accessing Win7 desktops via XenDesktop. I have been unable to figure out how to get the CTRL+Print Screen to work with the snipping tool to capture a snip of a menu. Is their any way to get this key combination to work/pass through?
Can you explain further? Windows Snipping Tool does not use any key combo AFAIK.
Sure … In order to take screen captures including menus with the snipping tool you can use CTRL+Print Screen. See snippet from the snipping tool help below. This is a feature the a good number of our users use.
From Snipping tool help…
To capture a snip of a menu
If you want to capture a snip of a menu, such as the Start menu, follow these steps:
Click to open Snipping Tool.
After you open Snipping Tool, press Esc, and then open the menu that you want to capture.
Click the arrow next to the New button, select Free-form Snip, Rectangular Snip, Window Snip, or Full-screen Snip from the list, and then select the area of your screen that you want to capture.
