I have a small problem on my new Dell Latitude XT.
I want to copy current windows to the clipbord in Windows
On a desktop computer I would have pressed Alt-PrtScrn. This would copy the current marked windows to my clipboard. But how can i do this on a Latitude XT?
There is the blue FN witch I must press for PRTscn
So when I press FN PRTSCRN and ALt i does not work
Has any one any idees to do this?

Well, I have tried in many diffrent way to make a printscreen on a windows that is active but the solution has not present it self to me jet. I even tried the Dell support and even they faild to help me :(
On the Latitude XT, the problematic key has three functions:
1. [F11] in white - this is the default key action.
2. [PrtScn] in blue - this action requires holding [Fn] while pressing the key.
3. [SysRq] in blue - Pressing [Alt]+[Fn]+ the key invokes this function.
The problem is that in Windows XP, the key combination [Alt]+[PrtScn] is supposed to copy an image of only the current active window (instead of the entire desktop) to the clipboard. However there is no combination of keys you can press for this purpose on the XT.
I have had several other Dell laptops (all running WinXP) with this same mixture of 3 key labels, but they do not have the same behaviour as on the Latitude XT:
- Dell Inspiron 710m
- Dell XPS M1210
- Dell Latitude D430
On all of the above laptops, pressing [Fn]+[Alt]+[F11] is analagous to [Alt]+[PrtScn] and simply captures the active window. Frustration arises when a certain model is inconsistent.
