That is right,
Press The Print Screen Button.

if nothing happen, go to control panel, Directx
DirectDraw tab, Options, Mark "Enable PrintScreen Key"

That''s all

I have a tutorial about this on my site. See "Taking Screenshots with Direct3D 8" at http://www.geocities.com/foetsch. The article comes with full source code.
