Print screen not working from VB code.

Why will the following code not capture the entire screen but only the vb application window? I thought it was ALT + PRTSC that only captures the current window and PRTSC alone captures the entire screen.
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        System.Windows.Forms.SendKeys.Send("{PRTSC}")
    End Sub

Open in new window

Idle Mind,

Thanks that works. If you don't mind I will leave the question open a few days in case someone can answer the original question.
