Will it be possible to do a screen grab with the 6400M?

As title suggests, will it be possible to do a screen capture with the 6400M, i.e., say a jpeg or a png file that can be captured for inclusion with an email message?  Thanks.

    That is not a planned feature.

    If you're using Windows, you can just click the Windows search bar (usually on or near the start button)

    Then just type "sn" or "snip" and it will start Microsoft's Snip Tool, which is basically a screen capture, but you can decide what part of the screen you want captured.

    As for Apple devices, I do not use them.  I know Android devices can take screen shots by holding the power button and volume down at the same time, but Flex doesn't support Android.  /angries

    Apple would be three keys: Command-Shift-4. It then creates "cross-hairs" that you can drag over your selection. If you hold down the Control key, then it goes directly into your copy buffer, if not then it goes to a file on your desktop. Instead of the cross-hairs you can also select a window by pressing the Spacebar and hovering over the window that you want to capture (again using Control key or not).

    Thanks all. I knew about the Windows Snipping tool. Can we do that on the Maestro?? (6400M?) Also with an iPad and iPhone a screenshot amounts to a simultaneous press of the [Home] and [Power] buttons.  I simply find myself making frequent use of this feat. on the 7300, (far more than I ever imagined I would) so yes, it will be missed.  No, that doesn't mean I'm cancelling my order.  :)

    For the iPad you can easily capture an excellent screen shot by SIMULTANEOUSLY, and BRIEFLY, holding down the HOME button and the ON-OFF button. You will hear the usual shutter operation sound. The screenshot can be found in your CAMERA ROLL.
