=== How do I take a screenshot? ===
CMBN has no built-in screenshot function. Windows users can try Print Screen (which copies a screenshot onto the clipboard), and then paste the image in Paint or any other image manipulation program. However, Print Screen does not always work. OSX users can use command-shift-3 and command-shift-4 in the usual way.

CMBN has no built-in screenshot function. Many users can press Print Screen (which copies a screenshot onto the clipboard), and then paste the image in Paint or any other image manipulation program.

If Print Screen does not work on your machine, you must use a third party program, such as Fraps.
