well i've had my mini a fair while now, however another question crops up!

is there anything in osx like printscreen and alt+printscreen.

that is a quick way to put the full screen or current window on the clipboard, ready to paste into whatever (usually an email).

preferably using no extra programs (since windows does not)

i think there maybe and i remeber reading it, but can't seem to locate where it was.


cheers.

Go to www.apple.com/support and do a search for "copy screen to clipboard". You'll find a number of useful articles, one that answers your question directly and another that has a pretty comprehensive list of keyboard shortcuts. Note that some vary slightly by whether you're running 10.2, 10.3, 10.4, etc.

Excellent!

Got it all sorted now!

It's always too hard to find something when you are looking for it, you only ever find it when you are not Wink

Cheers.

So what did you have to do and what version of OSX are you running?
