    Yes, it was implemented in WP 8.1 when the requirement for physical buttons was lifted. So it makes no sense to require someone to press the windows key if he doesn't have it.

    8.1 Yeah, it's pretty dumb but necessary since they watered down the WP specs to have the option not to include capacitive buttons.

    Hmmm. Do the phone hardware guys not know that's also a key combination in use on Surface? But has a very different purpose there...
    ​They could do with maybe talking to each other.

    Agreed, it's a bit stupid having different key combinations.

    Screenshot should be now taken with volume UP and Power Button?
    True enough.

    When did this happen?
    When 8.0 + Black updated to 8.1 + Cyan...

    How?
    The change was hardcoded into the OS.

    O... K...

    Since it changed from Windows + Power, I've always used Vol Up + Power.

    Just checked that combo and it works on:
    Lumia 520 official 8.1 + Cyan
    Lumia 928 official 8.1 Update + Denim
    Lumia 1520 official 8.1 Update + Denim
    Lumia 635 Insider Fast Track Win 10 Phones

    I don't have a phone on Black to test
