Windows Mixed Reality is the first spatial operating system. Instead of using a flat screen and a 2D interface, it uses our instinctual ability to navigate three-dimensional space. Every place has a purpose, and content has context. Just as your PC starts at the desktop interface and your phone begins with a home screen, Windows Mixed Reality starts at the Mixed Reality home. It's an environment that you can navigate and personalize to make your own. It's the canvas for the thousands of apps available in the Microsoft Store or SteamVR. You can multitask with these apps like never before--in 3D where space is almost limitless.

You can take a mixed reality capture (MRC) photo at any time while in Windows Mixed Reality.

Mixed reality capture photos are saved as a .jpg file to your C:\Users\<username>\Pictures\Camera Roll folder for you to share or do with what you want.

Reference:

This tutorial will show you how to take a screenshot in Windows Mixed Reality on a Windows 10 and Windows 11 PC.
