Based on your responses, it looks like you want to save a snapshot of the Site Viewer window, similar to saving a figure window's contents. Unfortunately, Site Viewer doesn't currently have any functionality similar to "savefig" or "saveas" for figures. For now you'd have to use utilities like "print screen" to save an snapshot of the Site Viewer.
You also mentioned wanting to change the size and orientation of the Site Viewer via script. Unfortunately, the orientation currently cannot be set using a script. You can still set the size of the viewer by changing the last two values of the "Position" field of the viewer like so.
viewer = siteviewer;
width = 600; % screen pixels
height = 400; % screen pixels
viewer.Position(3:4) = [width height]

Guess the best solution for now is windows prt screen. The solution of /apddata/temp/xx.png not having the terrain background, legends and icons is less useful. Thank you for the assistance.

Another way to capture screenshots of siteviewer directly from within Matlab is to use the screenshot diagnotic class.
png files are stored to a temporary directory and a prefix can be defined.
Create a TestCase for interactive use.
import matlab.unittest.TestCase
testCase = TestCase.forInteractiveUse;
Use a ScreenshotDiagnostic to log an image of the desktop as a test diagnostic with a custom prefix
import matlab.unittest.diagnostics.ScreenshotDiagnostic
