I am using SDL for a basic video player type functionality, but in ms-windows PrintScreen key doesn't works with it. I tried the hardware-fullscreen, software-fullscreen and software-windowed modes. In fullscreen, the alt-tab combination also doesn't works. In windowed mode, printscreen works only when some "other" window is selected :-) I think its because SDL is capturing the key-press events (just guessing). How do I fix this?

You will have to check for a keypress (on SDLK_PRINT) and then save the screen to an image on the disk.
