This is quite trivial issue that could be fixed, but lazy ass devs don't care. (JK!)
Well the workaround includes dconf tools and reassigning the shortcuts to new command.
First we need dconf tools and we gonna use
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
or click Install - it will launch the installation script. (fancy). Next thing we see is this awesome icon
Not this big of course. Go to your app center or w/e you are using and you will see it.
Create a shortcut wrapper.

shutter for this and so should you (it's safe, easy and fast)
we type in
shutter -f -e. The
-f stands for full screenshot and
-e will close the window immediately just like it never happened (but the screenshot goes to your directory)

You do know that this is only part of the job, what do we do if we want to capture only a window, like I did on those pretty screenshots I posted up there ?
We do the same thing over - again. With one small change - we use the
-a attribute to snatch the active window.
and the dconf editor goes as follows
WARNING Remember to remove the actual

For more of those screenshot tricks ..
You can check the command help
