    Default the [PrtSc] button can't work when the menu list of application open?

    just click the [Computer] button at the left-bottom corner of the GNome desktop, the menu will shown, now press the printscreen button [PrtSc], nothing happen. no screenshot was made.

    or open any application , then click the menu like [file], let the menu list shown, then press [PrtSc] button, same thing, nothing happen.

    is it by design? or a bug?

    It's just the way the system works. The menu has focus and so the command
    doesn't run. The workaround is simple though. From the command line
    (preferably) or a 'Run' type of dialog (Alt+F2) enter the following command:

    gnome-screenshot -d 5

    When you press [enter] you will have five seconds to get your system just
    like you want the screenshot to appear (open the menu) and the dialog will
    show up when the screenshot is completed.

    Good luck.

    another question about the screenshot function:

    how can I only take the screenshot for the current active window,like the circled part in below image?

    I just take a screen and gimp it to size. Takes less than a min.
    Use area selector and then from 'Image' in the menu. Crop to selection
    My openSUSE 13.1 KDE Box
    My Articles
    Was I any help? If yes: Click the star below

    yes, I know can use GIMP to edit it.

    but, I think it should have a function can just take screenshop only for active window like in Windows Operating System, [PrtSc] button will got the whole screen, and [Alt]+[PrtSc] can only get the active window without any backgroup.

    ok, I got the answer from man page
    I should read the man page first before ask question here.
    sorry for this.

    Code:
    OPTIONS
           -w, --window
                  Grab the current active window instead of the entire screen.

    I'm glad you found it.... I was about to post the same and it would have
    been a bit sarcastic. :-)

    Still, you found it and that's the key. Good work, and happy computing.

    Good luck.

    Also many/most commands in the *nix world will try to help you out if you
    ask them directly; for example:

    gnome-screenshot --help

    '--help' and '-h' will usually get you some kind of output to give you a
    bit of usage information for a command. It's often a good thing to try
    just before checking the manpage (followed by checking Google, followed by
    whatever else).

    Good luck.
