I'm looking for an in-game keystroke for taking a screenshot. I Googled it, it but to no avail. I'm a bit puzzled; I tried all function keys and Print Screen but they did not help.

Print Screen didn't work? Are you sure it didn't save a screenshot somewhere? – Frank Feb 6 '13 at 20:50
You could always try "Print Screen", open up paint and just paste in there. – Samjus Feb 6 '13 at 21:17
How is a Dead Space 3 question a duplicate of a Diablo 3 question? – murgatroid99 Feb 7 '13 at 0:47
What actually makes you think the game provides such an option? Just curious. – deutschZuid Feb 7 '13 at 1:38
I see that, but the problem is that that means that this question is only a duplicate if the answer to it is "no, there is no keybinding to take a screenshot". Closing as a duplicate based on that doesn't make any sense. – murgatroid99 Feb 7 '13 at 2:22

I can't see any keybindings for it either, however you can never go wrong using Fraps for your game screenshots. It'll work with any thing.

If you have a GTX660 and higher, you can record with ShadowPlay. Then using VLC, you can take snapshots.

Try to give solutions that apply to a general audience or perhaps specifically to the person who asked the question. Approximately half of all PC gamers use NVidia cards, but of that portion only some of them have a GTX660 or higher, and you have no idea if the asker is one of them. – MBraedley Feb 1 '14 at 15:05
