Make sure you are using patch 1.2.

Check in EAW.INI and in the [Remappable Keys] section there should be an entry:

ScreenCapture=RMENU

If not, add it.

I cannot remember, but I think patch 1.1 removed it.

The other way is to delete EAW.INI and restart EAW but then you have to reset all your games options and key mappings again.

EAW.INI is located in the folder that you install EAW into. This is typically:

C:\Program Files\MicroProse\European Air War

If you double click on EAW.INI (the extension INI may not be displayed depending on how you have Folder Options set, but the icon looks like a pad with a nut in the bottom left corner - the Type field will say 'Configuration Settings') it will load into Notepad and you can then edit it.

If all else fails, go to your START button in the left lower corner of the taskbar and click it. Go to "Find", and select "Files or Folders". Type "eaw.ini" and hit "Find Now". This should give you a list of anything with that name (there should only be one "eaw.ini" file in the folder "European Air War". On that list that shows, double click where it says "eaw". This should open the file in Notepad. (you can use the same technique to find your EAW folder: just type "European Air War" and hit "Find Now".)

Once the eaw.ini file is opened, you can edit anything in it the same way that you would change text in any Notepad or Wordpad document. For screenshots, go to the very bottom of the Notepad and find the line "ScreenCapture=". There should be something written after it. To change to "RMenu", you simply type "RMenu" after the "equals" sign. After changing it, it should look like this: ScreenCapture=RMEMU
When you close the Notepad, you will likely be prompted if you want to save the changes. Click on "Yes" and you are done.

Bear in mind that this IS case sensitive: You must type "RMENU" in all capital letters. "RMenu" will not work! Neither will "Rmenu" or anything else like it.

You can in fact, change the screenshot key (or any other key) to any key you want. I use the Insert key (ScreenCapture=INSERT). The only thing to remember here is that you can only change to a key that EAW does not currently use for anything else.
