It all comes down to a simple and quick button combination
If you’re one of the Surface RT early adopters, you probably know that Microsoft’s first tablet ever comes with a lot of helpful features, including a screenshot taking utility.This particular tool, however, can only be used via a button combination, as the Touch Cover delivered with your Surface does not feature a “Print Screen” key. Here’s what you need to do:
Hold down the “Windows” button, the one at the bottom of the tablet, and the press the “Volume Down” key on the left side of the device.The screen should dim a little bit for about a second to let you know that you’ve just made a new screenshot. The photo is automatically saved in your pictures library in a new folder called “Screenshots.”
The same trick works on absolutely all Windows RT tablets, as they all feature a Windows “home” button and a volume control.
