The other day I accidentally managed to take a screenshot on my Samsung Galaxy (orginal). So, I thought I would share that information here as I couldnt find this previously when I was searched.
If it makes a difference I am running –> Model: GT-19000. Firmware:2.3.3
How to take a screenshot on a Samsung Galaxy mobile phone
- Press the “back-up” button similataneously with the “home” button
- Wait. There is a second delay
- You will see a short, and quick confirmation message saying that the image is in your gallery
- 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!
In-case you don’t know what the home and backup buttons are – here is a handy reminder.
As simple as that.
I am sure that other manufacturers or hardware behave differently. But anyway, that’s my experience.
