It's devparm.

You type doom -devparm, or doom2 -devparm, or whatever, and then once in the game, you press one of the F keys to take a shot. It's been awhile since I've done it that way, but I think it was F1.

Oh, and if by Doom for Windows you mean Doom '95, the DOS .exe's that you need to use to take screenshots are in the relevant directories on the CDs.

Taking screenshots, courtesy of: http://cybertootie.com/screenshots.html

In order to take screenshots, you must be in the devparm mode. To go into devparm mode, go to the MS-DOS prompt and go to your Doom directory (e.g., C:\DOOM2). Then type in doom2 followed by -devparm (doom2 -devparm). If you want to do this with the ThinLine WAD, then type in -file tline1.wad, too. (doom2 -devparm -file tline1.wad) Then to take a screenshot, all you have to do is press the F1 key. Instead of getting the help menu, it will take a screenshot and save it as a PCX file in the Doom directory.

you can also take screenshots by pressing the PrintScreen key. But then you have to paste the pic in a program ... like Paint or something
