How To Take A Screenshot On Android
Taking a screenshot on Android does depend on the android device you have. Either way, it starts the same. You need to see whatever you want to screenshot on your phone screen currently. Once you have that in view, you can do one of the following:
- Press the Power and Volume down buttons at the same time. This should then take a screenshot for you, but it may take some practice to get pushing both buttons at the same time down.
- Press and hold the Power Button for a few seconds, then tap the word Screenshot. If your phone is not able to take screenshots as above, then this is how it will work.
If neither of these ways works, you should go to your phone manufacturer’s support site and take a look there. Once you have taken a screenshot, a small preview will appear on the bottom left-hand side of the screen.
You can then view your screenshot in your screenshots folder or images folder. From there, you can share or view your screenshot and use it for whatever you want to use it for. Now, you should know how to take a screenshot on Android. It may take some practice to be able to take screenshots on the first go!
