There are many ways to take a screenshot on an Android device. You can take a screenshot with the power button, take a screenshot without the power button or even take a screenshot with an app. We’ll walk through some of the most common methods for taking a screenshot on an Android and help you determine the best approach for your device.
The quickest way to take a screenshot on an Android device is to press and hold the Power + Volume Down buttons at the same time. An onscreen animation will pop up, along with a confirmation in the notification bar that your screenshot was successful.
Although some Android phones use the first method to take a screenshot, other Android devices have their own built in screenshot shortcuts. Check out some examples:
If you need to take a screenshot without the power button on your phone, consider using an app. Some apps allow you to simply take a screenshot and save it to your device, while others have cool editing features that give you the option to touch up your screenshots before you save them.
Another popular app called Super Screenshot allows you to crop your screenshots before it saves them. It will also give you the option to resize your snaps, write on them, add notes and even add various filters.
