Print screen on keyboard mac

This does not answer the original question. The questioner has a PC. And has a Mac keyboard plugged into it. The Mac keyboard does not have a Print Screen key. It has an Alt key and an F13 key, which would be the equivalent of how you'd do this with a PC keyboard. But that doesn't seem to work for me either. This should also work with XP. I have a PC who's running windows vista 64 bit with the mac keyboard and the print screen function F13 is actually working.

Hoping that help somebody I am new to the "Mac World" and still not very happy about it. My keyboard gets to F12 no F13, no F I use Windows XP, and I really need to be able to use prntscrn on the windows side. I tried to find other ways Please Help! I appreciate very much any response. Thanks mrmacfixit.
