    I just got a wired Apple keyboard, and I'm using it on Windows XP. However, there's no print screen on the keyboard =\
    Is there a keyboard shortcut to do this on Windows with an Apple keyboard or some kind of program to remap the keyboard?

    I'm not sure how to only map one thing but you can do this to map F13- F15 as Print Screen, Scroll Lock, and Break respectively.

    1. On your PC, copy the following lines into a text file.

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]

    "Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,04,00,00,00,46,E0,5F,00,46,00,5E,00,37,E0,5D,00,00,00,00,00

    2. Rename the text file remap.reg.

    3. Double click on the file remap.reg and answer yes to the question about adding the information to the registry.

    4. Reboot.

    Function keys are now remapped to their PC equivalents.

    I did all that and even checked the registry editor to make sure that everything was there. After I rebooted, I opened up Photoshop just to see if I could paste a screenshot but nothing happened. I've tried pressing F13, F14, & F15 each and none of them worked.
