  1. Press the “back-up” button similataneously with the “home” button
  2. Wait. There is a second delay
  3. You will see a short, and quick confirmation message saying that the image is in your gallery
  4. Go to your gallery and you will find your screengrabs in a new folder it creates called “Screen capture”. It may take 5 secs for the folder to appear the first time. So be patient!
