Question about Microsoft DA900013 Keyboard
Actually there is no separate PrtScn key on the Arc keyboard. The print screen is a Function key combo.

To capture the active window only it is Alt + Fn + Home

To print screen shots the most effective method is:
1) press and hold the control (ctrl) key
2) press the print screen (prt scr) once
3) open a graphics program
4) press control and hold and press 'c' to insert the image
5) print or save the image
Good luck, I hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
Whatever happened to the Print Screen key??
If you did computers back in the 80's (DOS days) you probably remember using the Print Screen key on your keyboard to print a copy of whatever was on the monitor screen at that time to your printer. It wasn't used that much because back in those days it took forever for a dot matrix printer to print out the entire monitor screen. However, it came in handy once and awhile.
Microsoft has turned the key into into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen.
After taking the snapshot, in XP simply click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. Then click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face!
Now you can use "Save As" and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.
If your keyboard Print Screen key performs more than one function you will have to experiment a little to get it the key to perform the Print Screen Function. Try holding down the ALT, SHIFT, or CTRL key (or any "special" keys unique to your keyboard) when you hit the Print Screen key in order to get the key to perform its Print Screen function.
