How do I "Print Screen" in 8.1 Pro?

Hi

Surface 2 Pro/type 2 keyboard...I wanted to capture a screenshot this afternoon. I could find no solution that worked for me on how to "Print Screen" as one would do in Windows 7. I found: Windows key +volume down: Ctrl+Alt+Minus...and, Ctrl+Alt+Plus...none worked...even Surface "Chat" support did not have an answer ...Does anyone have an answer?

The only option I did find was to use Snipping Tool and paste, or use OneNote and Screen Clipping...Just could not capture the whole screen

===========================================
Sounds like you tried everything but the following article
may be worth a look:

Windows 8 - RT - Take a screen capture (print your screen)

Have you tried   
Press   Fn + Windows Key + Spacebar

Also try   Fn + Alt + Spacebar

Did you have a look at your manual to see if an alternate
key was used for print screen?
