Anyway to do this, thanks for any help.

Try Opt("SendKeyDelay", 0). See if that helps.

Try Send("{Down}A")

Tried both of those, both send the keys at different times.

Tried:

Send("{Down}A")

Send("{Down}+A")

Send("{Down +A}")

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 0)

Send("{Down}")

Send("A")

Also tried the Opt command with the others above also after they failed the first time.

All of these send the keys one after the other, never at the same time.

Send("^{PRINTSCREEN}") would be how to do that. It's in the help file.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
