I have MacBook Pro Retina running Windows 8.1. I do not have a PrtScr key. Also, shift+fn+f11 key combination doesn't work. What is the shortcut to take screenshots?


Use the Snipping Tool that ships with Windows, it's made for that exact purpose. The Windows help page is here, info found using this search tool ;-)


⇧ shift+fn+F11 is the correct keyboard shortcut to emulate a Print Screen in Windows, however this shortcut requires the Boot Camp drivers to be installed and be running in Windows. Make sure you have the drivers installed correctly and check whether the keyboard is configured to require fn in Boot Camp Control Panel.


If you hear the click sound when taking a screen shot the the shot has been taken and it is in your Clipboard.

To get it, open any application (like paint or other) and use the "Paste command" to see it/modify and save as a file in a location of your choosing.


now win10 support shift+win+s hotkey to take a screenshot, I give up this task by using touch bar of windows in macbook.


The FN+Option+Shift+F11 (and also FN+Shift+F11) will only work if you have the setting on Boot Camp Control Panel tuned off (unmark the checkbox): Keyboard tab > "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys..."

Extra tip:

FN+Shift+F11 = Captures the full screen

FN+Option+Shift+F11 = Captures the current active window


I just messed around using Bootcamp Windows 10 on Mac laptop, the issue is not the control, it is the setup:

First, set up OneDrive

Press FnShiftF11P

Prompt will ask you if you want to save screenshots to OneDrive: Yes

For future screenshots use the original command of FnShiftF11
