Using on-Screen Keyboard to Print Screen

Well, firstly, thanks for making the Onscreen Keyboard so much bigger and more usable in W7 compared to XP.  All good, until you need to "Print Screen", at which point you get an enormous section of the screen that you don't want - i.e. the new enlarged virtual keyboard.

So, is there a way to use the Onscreen Keyboard to print just the screen and not itself - sort of like you would get if it really was a keyboard - imagine how annoying it would be for all users if every time they used that function it inserted a nice big picture of your real keyboard over what you actually wanted.... Hohum, this has been a problem with XP, now a bigger one - 4 times as big in fact, with W7.

Thanks for any pointers.




Well if you want to take screenshots of the screen then, you can use snipping tool on Windows 7 which can be used to capture a screen shot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image.
