Ok, then to all, where in the tde grand scheme of hot keys such as that, 
am I likely to find that setting so that I can post it for all to use?
under tde control center>regional & accessability>keyboard shortcuts
I can scan down and I find, on the Global Shortcuts tab, with current 
scheme selected,

Window Screenshot	Alt+print
Desktop Screenshot	Ctl+Print

And down at the bottom of the window, the checkbox "Use Win key as 
modifier, is checked.  And in keyboard prefs, a generic 104 key was not 
selected because the checkbox at the top of the window was not checked, 
ghosting everything out.

This keyboard itself is an about 126 key Logitech k360. Its a slightly 
odd keyboard, with square sided, not tapered keys as I like to use the 
same keyboard on all my machines, and the other 3 keyboards are in what 
can best be described as very hostile environments, with flying cuttings 
from the machines landing on the keyboard, the straight sided keys do 
not jam down from a metallic cutting getting into the area between the 
key's side, and the keyboards keyframe, near as easily as a tapered side 
key does. I found a membrane supplier who makes a cover for this 
keyboard, but I find I have to use additional force when typing or it 
doesn't register.  Makes writing gcode more difficult, but thats how it 

So the bottom line is that the system seems to have a decent default                                            
response, and only one hotkey combo works, and does so without an actual 
setting other than a default US keyboard because none is selected.  That 
multiselector menu offers a lot of different makers keyboards but the 
list is old and doesn't include the K360 as a specific choice.  And for 
the ksnapshot function, only the FN+home key works HERE.  And apparently 
only if focus is on an empty spot on the screen.

Neither the Ctrl+home, nor the Alt+home as shown above works.

How it arrives at that, based on what I can see, I obviously haven't a 
clue.  Best I can do is call it a nilmerG. Or a Murphy. :-{
