We browse through pages of data on our Android smartphones and tablets on a daily basis. This data can be anything from important emails, photos, web pages, social media posts, etc.
Sometimes, we come across content that we want to save for sharing with your friends or for future reference. In such cases, the best way to save such content on your smartphone is to take a quick screenshot. The best part is that thanks to advancements in the Android OS, you can now save a screenshot and even create custom markups or doodles on the screenshot before saving or sharing it.
An interesting point to note is that with the latest build of Android, there are two-way to take a screenshot, one is via a built-in feature in the UI, and the other is via a hardware key combination. The first point is different for different UI flavors, but the hardware combination remains more or less the same.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to take a screenshot on Android.
Step 1. Browse to the content you want to screenshot on your Android smartphone.
Step 2. Press the Power + Volume Down buttons together for 2-3 seconds.
Step 3. Crop and edit the screenshot as per your requirements.
You can now save it to your gallery, or directly share the screenshot with your friends on any social media apps.
Now, if the hardware combination does not work for some reason, you can long-press the power button and then tap on the ‘Screenshot’ option to grab the screen as required.
