How to Capture Specific Areas of Your Screen with a Partial Screenshot on Windows Surface
Taking a partial screenshot on a Windows Surface device is an easy and efficient way to capture specific areas of your screen. This guide will provide step-by-step instructions on how to do so.
First, open the application or window you would like to take a partial screenshot of. Then, press and hold the Windows logo button at the bottom of your device and press the volume down button at the same time. This will take a full screenshot of your current display, which will be saved in your Pictures folder as “Screenshot (number).png”.
Next, open Paint 3D from your Start menu or search bar. Once opened, click “New” in the top left corner and select “Canvas” from the dropdown menu that appears. Then click “Insert” in the top right corner and select “Pictures” from the dropdown menu that appears again. Select your recently taken screenshot from this list by clicking it once; it should now appear on your canvas in Paint 3D.
Now you can use Paint 3D’s selection tools to draw around whatever area you would like to capture as a partial screenshot; simply drag around this area with either one of these tools until it is highlighted blue (you can also resize this selection by dragging its edges). Once finished selecting an area, click “Crop” in the top right corner; this will crop out everything outside of what was selected while leaving everything inside intact within its own canvas window (you may need to scroll down slightly for this option). Finally, click File > Save As… > PNG Image (*PNG) at the top left corner and save it wherever you’d like! Your partial screenshot should now be ready for use!
