The uber-geeks know it. Still there are lots of users who have no idea how to do it. But it is my goal to help non-geeks navigate the world of mobile. As a non-geek phone user, you never know when this information will come in handy. Here is what to do to take a screenshot on your Android JellyBean smartphone or tablet:
Press the volume down and the power button at the same time until you hear the camera shutter click.
That takes a screenshot and saves it to your device. You can find your screenshots by launching the Gallery app and looking in the “Screenshot” album.
PS: On older Android devices, it used to be Power + Home button held down simultaneously. Don’t forget to buy me a shawarma later! Toodles…
