How to Screenshot / Screen Capture Microsoft Surface Pro

Surface Pro 3 ScreenshotI hope your enjoying your Microsoft Surface tablet / laptop hybrid.  I’ve owned and used the RT, Surface Pro 2, and now the Surface Pro 3 core i7 model.  There are a thousand reasons you may need to screenshot or screen cap from your Surface gadget.  Here are 2 easy, built-in ways to capture your screen.

These 2 methods have worked on all my Surface gadgets.

METHOD 1 TO SCREEN CAP SURFACE PRO ( 2 on tablet presses )

  1. Press and hold the “capacitive”  Windows button on the front of your Surface Screen(on the bezel) with your right hand.
  2. Continue holding the windows button and then a single press the Volume Down button with your left hand.

The screen will go slightly dim for a just a quick moment when you’ve done it right.

METHOD 2 TO CAPTURE SCREENSHOT SURFACE PRO ( Keyboard 3 key-combo )

  1. Press and hold the windows Key(left hand),  and the Fn(function) Key(right Hand), then just tap the space bar with your favorite 3rd finger or thumb.

 

WHERE ARE SCREENSHOTS SAVED ?

The Screenshot will be saved in This PC > Pictures > Screenshots..  AKA  C:\Users\**YOU**\Pictures\Screenshots

If you’re a dropbox user, you can enable a setting that will also copy the screenshot to your clip board, which can be handy ( when applicable ).  If you’re not a dropbox user, you should consider finally signing up here.
