Question Random postscript File called "sys", very curiuous


Hello all, I've discovered a random file that... I don't believe I've created called "sys". After a little investigation with the file and string commands I determined is was a postscript file. So I decided to view it and it appeared to simply be an image file... a screenshot of my desktop.

I use Debian Jessie and I run the Awesome WM and was using the Terminology Terminal at the time. Could there be a hotkey that I may have run by accident to generate a printscreen of the filetype listed above that I'm not aware of?

This all seems very strange to me... Any advice you have would be useful. Thanks in advance!

There is a PrtSc key on most keyboards that does that sort of thing so it is highly likely that if your default printer is left as pointing to file then that will be the result.

Thanks for the reply Dave, I thought the same thing... but I can't seem to replicate that by pressing the printscr button. More over it seems odd it would label the file "sys"... but it would explain why the file was saved as a postscript file.
