How do I take a screenshot on an Android device?


You can find below the instructions for taking a screenshot on any Android device other than Samsung:

  1. Press the Power button and Volume down key at the same time.
  2. Hold both buttons pressed until you hear a click or a screenshot sound.


And here’s how you can take a screenshot on a Samsung device:

(This tutorial should work on any Samsung phone that has a Home button.)

  1. Press the Power and Home buttons at the same time.
  2. Then hold both buttons pressed for a second, until a shutter sound is heard or you see a small visual effect indicating a screenshot was taken.
  3. This may be a little difficult to get right at first, so make sure to hold the Power button slightly before you press the Home button -> then hold them both down.
