How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Screenshot Hotkey in Emulator

It is physically impossible for me to play my game in the emulator and capture an image of it that actually represents what gameplay looks like.

My game is controlled by the Accelerometer and has very rapid gameplay that makes switching from using the Accelerometer to Screenshot tab and actually capturing a screenshot impossible. It simply doesn't work. In order to take the screenshot it takes 2 mouse clicks and about half a second. If I am lucky I can do it before my character dies, even then though the player is just moving in a straight line to nowhere by the time I actually take the screenshot.

As such I can't capture the gameplay occurring in my game.

What I am asking for is some key that will act like the Screenshot->Capture command without me having to change tabs in the Emulator window or release the Accelerometer. Even something as simple as ctrl+S would be a godsend for me.
