    I received my Dell E6400 yesterday and need to take screenshots because I am writing training manuals. My problem is that with my Dell D260 I could press keys on my keyboard ALT PrntScrn and capture the active screen. With the E6400 there is only one option to capture screens and that is the Fn key with the F11 which is the PrntScreen button. But this option takes the full screen capture. Is there anybody who could please help me.

    I can only suggest a software solution.

    If you use Vista*, check out Windows Snipping Tool. To run it, do Win key (which will open the start menu) and then type: snip and then hit on the ENTER key. It should run it. You can use this tool to take a screen shot of a free area that you draw with your mouse, a window or panel, full screen or custom rectangle shape. You can save your screen shot in max quality as JPEG, PNG, or GIF

    *Vista Home Premium/Business/Enterprise/Ultimate only.

    Alternatively, you can press Fn + Alt + F11 to take a screen shot of a the active window :)

    It's finding out about cool hidden things like this that make browsing forums worth it.
    Thanks

    I missed if you need to take video captures or simle screenshots of your screen.
    I use this program for my video tutorials. I guess, there can be more useful software on the site, so you make have a look.
