Print Screen Command

You mean press Print Screen and send output to the printer?

No, not without a third-party program like this:

Print Screen key prints to the clipboard, where you can past in Paint or Word etc.

Unfortunately, you cannot use Print Screen to print directly to a printer. However, using the Print Screen key puts the screen-shot into the clipboard. Print Screen by itself copies whatever is open on the entire desktop. ALT + Print Screen copies only the most open window. You then can then paste the image into Paint, Word, Powerchute, etc., and print it from there.

Not directly, but there is a freeware program called PrintKey2000 that will capture a screen print and send it either to the printer or to a document or graphics file.

We use it extensively for producing installation documentation and we've neverhad a problem with it.

I found it at sharewarejunkies.com but I'm sure many of the other freeware/shareware sites will have links as well.
