Just use this extremely simple hotkey: Windows Key+Shift+S



On my MS Surface Pro 8, Windows Key + PrtScn(F8) allowed me to capture the window.

Right there the whole time. I'd been using the above-mentioned tools, but this is so much easier, like it is on mac. FYI, this shortcut works with MS snipping tool, but you don't have to start the app of click anything. Thanks.
thanks that was helpful!
