The Best Screen Capture Utility for Surface RT (Windows 8 or 8.1)

Unable to install SnagIT on my Surface RT , I struggled to find a good screen capture tool for my Windows tablet.

The Snipping Tool is present natively, but not the most convenient option in terms of saving your screen captures, which led me to keep looking.


I looked at several inferior options options in the Microsoft Store I wont even bother to name, simply to ensure you don’t waste your time.

The winner for me was the Send to OneNote option, which has both Send to OneNote and Save to Clipboard options. Once you’ve saved to the Windows clipboard, you can simply CTRL + V into the document of your choice. If you select the Start with OneNote option, it will always be there on the desktop when you need it.
