This small guide explains how to take screenshots on the different versions of the Microsoft Surface tablet. You will notice is that there's no Printscreen
button on the Surface's keyboard, but it won't be a major concern as there are many other ways to take screenshots on your device.
On the Microsoft Surface Pro, Pro 2 and RT
: Simultaneously press the Windows
+ Volume down
The procedure is different on the Surface Pro 3
: Hold down the Fn
key and the Windows
button and then tap on Spacebar
Your screen will flick, indicating that the screenshot has been saved. You can view the screenshot by going to your Picture Library
folder (C:\Users\\My Pictures\Screenshots)
You can also use the Snipping tool
to take screenshots. The Snipping tool is already installed on your device and its main purpose is to capture snapshots of all or part of your screen. To launch the Snipping tool, simply open the Search Charms
and search for the app.
