Using the Side Button
The easiest way to take a screenshot on the Lenovo Yoga tablet is to press the Volume down button and the Power button on the side of the tablet. Doing so will capture and save the full screen that you can view in your Photos or Gallery in the Screenshots folder.
Depending on the model, the power button may be a smaller button just below the volume buttons or a large button on the hinge.
Using the Screenshot Option in the Pop-up Menu
Swiping up from the bottom of the screen brings up a menu containing settings or apps. It also has an option to take a screenshot, which lets you capture the full screen as well as the cropped area image.

Lenovo Yoga laptops or Lenovo Yoga books use the Windows operating system by default. So, you can also use all screenshot methods for Windows to take pictures on this device.
Using the Print Screen Button
Windows comes with an integrated screenshot feature that you can use with the PrtSc or Print Screen Button. You can use this feature to capture the full screen image or only the active window.
Press PrtSc button to capture full screen. Doing so only saves the image to the clipboard, so you’ll need to paste it into Paint or an image editor like Photoshop and then save it. Or you can directly share it with other people on the internet by pasting it from the clipboard. You can also press Windows key (⊞) + PrtSc to instantly take and save a full screenshot. Your system saves screenshots in the Pictures\Screenshots folder (inside C:\Users\“username”). It uses names Screenshots (xx), where xx is a number. Number is the first number that is not used for the same name in incremental order. So, if you have screenshots, Screenshot (1).png, Screenshot (2).png, and Screenshot (4).png, the next screenshot is Screenshot (3).png. Screenshots are also stored in the clipboard along with the Screenshots folder, so you can use them right away in any photo editor too.
