How to take dual or single-screen screenshots on Surface Duo

Despite being one of the most common tasks performed on a mobile device, taking a screenshot has always been very device-specific, with a different combo of buttons used on each device.

There are two ways to take a screenshot on Surface Duo. One is via software, and other is via a more traditional button press combo. Learn more below.

Take a screenshot (both screens)

Method 1: Press and hold the power button. Tap screenshot on the flyout menu.

Method 2: Press and hold the power + volume down buttons at the same time.

Take a screenshot (single screen)

Step 1: Fold one screen back, then use one of the methods above to take a screenshot of the active screen.

Note: Taking single-screen screenshots requires the March 2021 firmware update or later.

Where are the screenshots saved?

You’ll find your screenshots saved in Photos > Albums > Screenshots.
