Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio adapts to how you work (and play) throughout the day. Here’s a quick summary of the different ways you can use Surface Laptop Studio—just pull the display forward to change modes.

Tip: To help keep your Surface Laptop Studio looking its best, keep the bottom of the display raised a bit when changing modes, so it doesn't slide along the top of the keyboard.

Surface Laptop Studio in laptop mode, stage mode, and studio mode

Laptop mode

Use laptop mode to get work done like you do on your laptop today. Whether you’re writing a document, working on a spreadsheet, or doing anything else you do on your laptop, Surface Laptop Studio helps you do your best work with a sleek 14.4” touchscreen, comfortable keyboard, and large haptic touchpad.

Stage mode

To go from a laptop to stage mode, pull the display forward, so it sits right above the touchpad to get an angled stage to work. Use Surface Laptop Studio to:

  • Present to colleagues or clients.

  • Connect to external displays for a clutter-free workspace.

  • Talk on a Microsoft Teams call.

  • Use touch on the touchscreen to get things done—for example, browse the web.

  • Binge watch your favorite show or watch a movie.

  • Play Xbox games with an Xbox wireless controller.

Studio mode

Pull the display all the way forward to go into studio mode. Surface Laptop Studio becomes a portable canvas to draw, sketch, or just doodle with Surface Slim Pen 2 when inspiration strikes. (Surface Slim Pen 2 sold separately.) And when you’re not using your pen, it magnetically attaches under the front of the keyboard to securely store and charge it.

When you’re ready to use it like a laptop again, just lift the screen up.
