If you want to capture a screen from Metro or one of its apps and try a Windows Desktop screen capture program, it may not work. If you press the hot key for screen capture, nothing may seem to happen.
Now, press the hot key, then get to the Metro desktop and click Desktop. At that point, you’ll be sent back to the Metro screen you wanted to capture, and your screen capture program will spring into action ( if you use Snag-It)
Another way is when you’re inside a Metro app, put your mouse pointer at the bottom left of the screen and then click the Share button. You’ll then be prompted to share a screen capture using Metro’s Socialite app for Facebook. This technique won’t work on the main Metro interface itself, and may not work for every app.
