    The Gimp allows you to capture screens or individual window. (File -> Create -> Screen Shot)

    You can use the Snipping Tool if you are using either Vista, Seven or Eight.

    In Windows Vista and 7, click the Start button, select All Programs, then Accessories. Select the Snipping Tool from the list.
    In Windows 8 simply start typing “snipping tool” while on the Start screen and select it from the Search results.

    MWSnap, screen capture utility ( ) and Deskscan ( ) come to mind, both free and shouldnt be crapware of any sort, or you could find out a way to remap the key
