There is a key named "PrtSc/SysRq" on my keyboard. But I don't know how it works.
That key when pressed places whatever you see on the monitor on the clipboard. When a graphics program is open the Paste option can be used to open it. If you have multiple windows open, pressing ATL+PRNT will capture only the active window to the clipboard.

I use Jing. You can program it to s function key and trigger the snip with that key. Works for me since years. Besides, you can make annotations, highlights, boxes and arrows on the snip - like this:
