how to Take screenshots on Microsoft surface laptop

If you’re like me, you’ve been using Microsoft Surface laptops for years and never knew how to screenshot. Well, lucky for you, I’m here to share my knowledge!

How to take a screenshot on a Microsoft Surface Laptop

There are a few different ways to take a screenshot on a Microsoft Surface Laptop, depending on what you need the screenshot for.

If you just want to capture what’s on your screen at the moment, the simplest way is to just press the “PrtScn” button on your keyboard. This will take a screenshot of your entire screen, and save it as a PNG file in your “Screenshots” folder in Pictures.

If you only want to take a screenshot of part of your screen, you can use the Snipping Tool. To find this, go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Snipping Tool. Click and drag with your mouse to select the area of your screen you want to capture, and then click “Save As” to save it as an image file.

The first way is to use the Print Screen button on your keyboard. This will take a screenshot of your entire screen and save it to your clipboard. From there, you can paste it into an image editing program like Paint or Photoshop and save it as an image file.

If you only want to screenshot part of your screen, you can use the Snipping Tool. This tool lets you select an area of your screen to screenshot, and then you can save it as an image file.

Finally, if you want to take a screenshot of just one window on your screen, you can use the Alt + Print Screen shortcut. This will take a screenshot of the active window and save it to your clipboard. Again, from there you can paste it into an image editing program and save it as an image file.
