The inability to take screenshots in Windows Phone 7.X was well known to all of us and even Microsoft was aware of it. Microsoft ignored it since they believed only power users needed that feature with Aaron Woodman famously saying â€œI have never sat in a user groupâ€“and I sit in a lot of user groups, a lot of retail groupsâ€“Iâ€™ve never heard an end user go â€˜why canâ€™t I take a screenshot of that?â€
It seems Microsoft has finally caved to demand however and now it is rumoured that they are adding that feature in upcoming Windows Phone 8 OS.
WPDang reports that the ability to take screenshots in Windows Phone 8 will be enabled by Windows Key+Camera button combination.
The lack of easy screen capture has long hampered journalists who are covering the OS casually from writing about it so we really hope this report becomes true.
