    I've read this before and I keep forgetting. After Vista came out I got so used to not being able to Shift-PrtScr anymore so I don't even think about PrtScr. Maybe one of these days, thanks for the reminder!

    I guess it's not widely known: use snipping tool in a metro screen:-
    1. If you want to snip a pic in the metro screen, first go to desktop and launch snipping tool.
    2. go back to the metro screen(hover mouse to top left of screeen to pick the metro screen)
    3. Ctrl-PrtScr. :D

    You can also use Free Online Screenshot from screenshot.net. This tool can help you take multiple screenshots easily without any hassle, plus you can add annotations and then share your captured image to well known social media sites.
