Step-by-Step Guide to Taking Screenshots on Your Surface Laptop
Taking screenshots on your Surface Laptop is a simple process that can be completed in just a few steps. This guide will walk you through the process of taking and saving screenshots on your device.
1. To begin, press the “Windows” key and “PrtScn” key at the same time. This will take a screenshot of your entire screen and save it to the Screenshots folder in Pictures library.

3. If you want to take a screenshot of part of your screen, press “Windows” + Shift + S keys at once which will open up an overlay with options for selecting an area or full-screen snip from which you can select what type of screenshot you would like to take and where it should be saved afterwards (default is Pictures library).
4. Once you have taken your desired screenshot, open up File Explorer by pressing Windows Key + E together or searching for it in Start Menu search bar if needed; then navigate to Pictures > Screenshots folder where all screenshots taken are stored by default unless otherwise specified when taking them using step 3 above; here they can be viewed, edited or shared as desired!
