    Which tablet? Basically, you need to perform a PrintScreen which will copy the screen to the clipboard, then you can open Paint, paste the screen capture there, then start drawing on it.

    Win 8.1 Update x64

    In my dell venue 8 pro you can press (physical button) windows button(top side) + volume lower button simultaneously to copy scrnsht to clipboard.

    In Windows 8.1 don't remember it exactly, -> swipe in charms bar -> share -> tap the menu in the top side for taking screen shot-> send it to an app like Mail.
