Screenshot in VMware Fusion

Sadly the business world is a Windows world, which means I need Windows on my MacBook Pro to earn some money.. I’ve been using VMware Fusion for a while. Unfortunately the standard key mapping for “Print Screen” is F13, which is not included on my MBP keyboard. The solution I found was to key map a different function key myself using the free application SharpKeys.

I’ve chosen the F8 button (you need to hold the fn key as well), below is a screenshot of the correct setting. After writing the setting in the registry and rebooting Windows, my F8 key is screenshot-ing away! You can also make screenshots of the most front window by using alt-F8.
