You can take a screenshot on a Surface Pro tablet in a few different ways. Without a keyboard, on recent Surface Pro tablets, you can take a screenshot using the Power and Volume Up buttons. On an older Surface Pro, you will need to hold the Windows logo key and Volume Down to take a screenshot.   If you have a Surface Type Cover for your Surface Pro, you can use the PrtScn key to copy a screenshot to your clipboard, and then paste it somewhere else. Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. Because the Surface Pro is a tablet computer, using a keyboard is optional — so you might not have easy access to the Print Screen button located in the top row of most Windows keyboards.  That's okay — here's how to take a screenshot both with and without the Surface Pro keyboard. Check out the products mentioned in this article: Microsoft Surface Pro 7 (From $799.99 at Amazon) Urban Armor Surface 7 Pro Case (From $99.95 at Amazon) How to take a screenshot on a Surface Pro without a keyboard You don't need a keyboard to screenshot on a Surface Pro, but the process depends on whether you have a recent Surface Pro or an older model.  If you have a new Surface Pro, such as a Surface Pro 7 or Surface Pro X, taking a screenshot is similar to how you would take a screenshot on a phone:  1. Press and hold the Power button and the Volume Up button at the same time. 2. After a moment, the screen will flash and your screenshot will be captured. 3. The screenshot is automatically saved in the "Screenshots" subfolder in the Pictures folder on your tablet.  If you have an older Surface Pro — a Surface 3 or earlier — you'll need to use a slightly different technique: 1. Press and hold the Windows logo button on the tablet and the Volume Down button at the same time. 2. After a moment, the screen will flash and your screenshot will be captured. 3. The screenshot is automatically saved in the Screenshots subfolder in Pictures on your tablet.  How to take a screenshot with the Surface Pro keyboard If you're using your Surface Pro with a Surface Type Cover, you can use the same method to take a screenshot as you'd do with any Windows computer: using the Print Screen button.  The Print Screen button is labeled "PrtScn" and is found in the top row, to the left of the Home button. Press the PrtScn button to copy a picture of your entire screen to the clipboard — you can then paste the picture into a program like Paint, and save it from there.  The PrtScn button actually has a number of different functions — using keyboard combos, you can screenshot specific windows or just a portion of the screen.  For details on getting the most out of it and how to save your screenshot once you use the key, see our article, "How to take a screenshot on Windows 10 computers in several different ways."    Related coverage from Tech Reference: How to screenshot on a Chromebook in 2 different ways, and then open those screenshots later How to take a screenshot on your Apple Watch, and find those screenshots in the Photos app on your iPhone How to take a screenshot on Windows 10 computers in several different ways How to take a screenshot on a Mac, and find that screenshot on your computer later  How to take a screenshot on a Samsung Galaxy S10 in 5 different ways SEE ALSO: The best tablets you can buy Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Pathologists debunk 13 coronavirus myths

Photo by Vjeran Pavic / The Verge Video game spending in the US reached its highest point since 2010, according to a new NPD Group report, with sales through June reaching $6.6 billion on hardware, software, and accessories. It’s the highest total for the first six months of the year since spending hit $7 billion a decade ago. Spending has been dramatically higher in 2020 than it was compared to last year, with sales through June up 19 percent year over year, and June sales specifically were up 26 percent compared to the same month in 2019. While NPD’s numbers don’t cite a specific reason for the boost in sales, it’s hard not to draw the conclusion that a major contributing factor was the spike in video game playing caused by millions of people having a sudden boost in...

Teeming off Hawaii’s famous beaches is a complex web of life—sharks, turtles, seabirds—that relies enormously on tiny larval fish, the food for many species.In their first few weeks of existence the larvae are at the mercy of currents, still too puny to get around on their own, gathering by their millions in surface “slicks” where currents meet.And it’s here where they’re increasingly meeting a pernicious, omnipresent foe and mistaking it for food: microplastic.Researchers today published an ominous report showing that these slicks pack 126 times the concentration of microplastic as nearby surface waters, and eight times the density of plastic as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.Microplastic particles outnumber larval fish in the slicks by a factor of seven to one, and dissections of the larvae reveal that many have plastic in their bellies.The consequences, both for these species and the food web as a whole, are downright terrifying.

Amid concerns about low wages in the ride-hailing industry, a number of venture capital (VC)-backed startups have emerged to help drivers boost their earnings by selling goods, displaying advertising, and even crunching big data to optimize their routes.A report from the JPMorgan Chase Institute last year indicated that Uber and Lyft drivers earn 53% less than they did four years ago.As the poster child of the industry, Uber in particular has faced fierce criticism for the pay its drivers take home, and countless reports suggest ride-hailing companies don’t pass on the extra fees they charge for surge pricing.The tablet has a rear-facing screen, where riders can play games and even win cash prizes — interspersed with short ads that allow drivers to earn up to $100 per month.“Drivers have seen a nearly 50% drop in pay over the last few years as Uber / Lyft rates and incentives have fallen, and driver competition has risen,” Octopus cofounder and CEO Cherian Thomas told VentureBeat.The financing round was led by Sinclair Digital Group, an affiliate of Sinclair — one of the largest operators of TV stations in the U.S. Marketing- and media-focused VC firm MathCapital also participated in the round.

Controversial internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom and cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex have “mutually agreed” to defer Kimcoin’s token sale.According to a statement issued by exchange, the decision was taken as a result of the regulatory environment rapidly evolving since the sale was first announced in late September.“The risks associated with raising funds for the K.im token sale have become clearer, and we must put our community’s best interest first and foremost,” the statement reads.“After careful evaluation, we regret to announce that Bitfinex Token Sales and the K.im team have mutually agreed not to hold the token sale at this time,” it adds, “K.im will defer any decision on whether to create tokens on, or undertake a token issue in relation to the K.im platform until it is fully functional.”K.im’s platform project is set to continue and it’s likely that an equity-based offer will be made sometime in the near future, the statement adds.A few months ago, Hard Fork reported on how Kim Dotcom was looking to sell tokens to build a blockchain-powered content network, K.IM, pitched as a “secure and dynamic ecosystem” where consumers and publishers of digital content could easily transact and bypass middlemen.

Facebook has sued the NSO Group, a security software maker allegedly responsible for using the WhatsApp message platform to spread spyware earlier this year.The lawsuit claims the NSO Group used WhatsApp servers to deliver spyware to 1,400 mobile devices between April and May, allowing it to decrypt private messages.Facebook wants an injunction against the NSO Group barring it from using WhatsApp or Facebook services, along with damages and costs.While at first the lawsuit seems to be focused around how the NSO Group interfered with the service, used WhatsApp servers without authorization, and additionally broke the terms of service, the lawsuit has wider implications.A later section states the NSO Group used the spyware, “to target attorneys, journalists, human rights activists, political dissidents, diplomats, and other senior foreign government officials.”The NSO Group has responded to the lawsuit with a statement that concentrates solely on this accusation, stating that it provides its technology to licensed government intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and that its software is expressly made to target terrorism and serious crime.

After making an early splash with portable ECG accessories for smartphones, AliveCor has fought to remain relevant as smartwatches have grown to include similar heart monitoring tools.Today, the company announced a deal with Huami — the Xiaomi-backed smart wearable maker — to incorporate AliveCor solutions in future Huami devices.While AliveCor is perhaps best known for its Kardia-branded heart scanning devices, including the $99 phone-linked KardiaMobile, $150 KardiaMobile 6L, and Apple Watch-dependent KardiaBand, the company has more recently sought to build a $10/month subscription business around related cloud-based services and device replacement.The Huami deal will cover both AliveCor technology and services.“AliveCor’s intelligent, medical grade, heart care platform will be a key component of Huami smart watches and heart trackers going forward,” explained Huami CEO Wang Huang.“Our new partnership is critical to building these as well as entirely new medical grade services.”

Music service Deezer has released a new standalone music app designed specifically for Sony 360 Reality Audio, the immersive sound technology first introduced by the company at CES earlier this year.With this standalone app, Deezer users can directly access songs that are available in 360 Reality Audio, meaning they are quite immersive with realistic audio placement.As we reported earlier this month, Sony 360 Reality Audio will launch on around 1,000 songs this fall, enabling music fans to experience their favorite songs in an entirely new way.Simply put, Sony 360 Reality Audio is 360-degree sound technology that builds upon traditional binaural beats, offering an immersive experience when the user is listening with a 360-degree speaker system or with headphones.Users familiar with binaural audio will have an idea about what to expect — the different sounds in an audio recording are essentially played using virtual speakers with various placement to provide a sense of where the actual placement of the sounds were in real life.Sony’s technology puts the sounds all around the listener, taking things a step farther than binaural audio.

And really, who are we to deny you that small joy?The hits began with California representative Maxine Waters’ opening remarks, where she asked Facebook to “concentrate on addressing its many deficiencies and failures” rather than continue work on its Libra cryptocurrency project.Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez went as far as calling Zuckerberg a liar outright.Fortunately, this time around – and in stark contrast to the previous times Zuckerberg has been called to the Hill – many lawmakers seemed genuinely prepared to ask difficult questions (with the exception of nutjobs like Florida representative Bill Posey, who used his five minutes to rant against vaccinations for whatever reason).Illinois Democrat Bill Foster was the first to nail Zuckerberg down on the details of his cryptocurrency.When pressed, the Facebook CEO wasn’t able to affirmatively state: if Libra would allow for anonymous transactions (something that creates opportunities for digital currencies to be used for a variety of illicit activities); how Libra or Calibra would handle reversals in the event of fraud; or even how the project as a whole would make money.
