Is there an easy way to get notified when this key is pressed? Neither WM_KEYDOWN nor WM_SYSKEYDOWN seem to be fired, which makes sense, I guess, since normally windows should handle this. I would, however, like to use this key to make a screenshot just of my window. Is there any way to do this without having to use DirectInput (where I''m assuming this is possible, is that correct?) or any other alternative way of input?

You could try using the SetWindowsHookEx function to set up a WH_KEYBOARD handler, should work.
