Only three fingers, Bernard? Count yourself lucky. I've just been trying to 
capture a screenshot of an M$ Access mouse cursor that's only visible while 
licking and dragging. I discovered that to trigger SnagIt (shift-control-P) 
whilst manipulating the mouse, I needed three hands. After attempting to press 
keys with my nose, and considering enlisting the help of one of my cats, I 
eventually managed it by holding down the shift and control keys with an empty 
coffee mug.

(Ok, I know SnagIt can do timed captures, but I only thought about that 
afterwards. Duh!)
