    My K400r has a Prt Scn key around the top right of the keyboard, I then paste the image within Painshop pro.
    Not at my PC so can't provide screenshot.
    Edit: It appears in your case it's the function + back keys but as they're not working try just the back key as under the settings the function keys may be reversed - on my keyboard there's a box to tick to reverse the F+keys.
    By default, the top row of keys on your K400 Plus keyboard are assigned to navigation and media controls. You can set the keyboard to only use standard F1 - F12 functions using Logitech Options software.

    NOTE: If you don’t have Logitech Options, you can download it from the Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus Downloads page.

    To set the function keys to use only standard functions:
    Start Logitech Options:
    Start > All Programs > Logitech > Logitech Options
    Select the Keyboard tab in the upper left corner of the window.
    In the bottom left hand corner of the window, check Use F1-F12 as standard function keys. Your selection is automatically saved.

    Instead of using Print Screen, use Snipping Tool

    no worries. ill just use my pc's print screen option. i dont think i set up the keyboard the first time properly...usually i dont follow instructions thoroughly lol,


    edit - i found the solution. [FN] key + [windows ] key + [back] keys allow me to take screenshot.
