How to take a screenshot of your monitor when using Continuum on the Lumia 950 or 950 XL

Taking a screenshot of an external monitor while using Continuum doesn't work how you might think. We all know how to take a screenshot with the Lumia 950 or 950 XL, right? You press the volume up and power buttons at the same time. It's a different action if you want to take a screenshot of the bigger monitor. We'll show you how.

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key + PrintScr

This only works if your keyboard actually has the PrintScr button. I tried it on the Ozone Strike Pro gaming keyboard and can confirm that it works. I couldn't do it with the Microsoft Universal Foldable Keyboard because it doesn't have the keyboard button. I tried several combinations and had no luck. Let me know if you figure it out.

The screenshots are saved in your phone's photo collection. You can also access them in the screenshots folder.
