    I wanted to print a window, so I hit Shift-Apple-4. The cursor markers came up as expected, but the Windows Start menu also came up, covering part of the window I wanted to capture and print.

    How can I avoid this?

    As I know to print screen in Mac OS X you should use "Apple"+Shift+3. Don't release anything before you pressed all of them at the very same moment.

    I didn't want to print the whole screen, I wanted to Apple+Shift+4 (Although the apple symbol isn't on the new iMacs). This works similarly to Apple+Shift+3, but puts some cursors on the desktop which I can use to select a portion of the desktop to save.

    Either way, is a big pain since I have to then open the saved file, print it, then delete it.

    I haven't tried Apple+Shift+3 from within Parallels though - it wasn't what I wanted to do.

    Mine works properly in version 5158. I get no Windows start menu and you can select the part of the screen you want.

    IMAC 2gb memory with Windows XP Professional.
