How To Take a Screenshot on a Samsung Phone or Tablet
The steps for taking a screenshot on Samsung devices are similar regardless of which Galaxy phone or tablet you have. However, they may still differ slightly depending on the type of device you have. Here are a few options to take screenshots on Samsung phones or tablets.
Use the Volume Down and Power Buttons
For most people, this is the simplest way to take a screenshot on a Samsung device. Simply hold down the Power (or Side) and Volume down buttons at the same time.
The precise location of these buttons will be determined by your device. Both of these buttons are located on the right side of the Samsung Galaxy S22. The Volume button is on the left and Power button is on the right of the Samsung Galaxy S8.
Holding these buttons for a second or two is all that is required. When you take a screenshot, the screen will flash white.
Capture with a Palm Swipe
Another way to take a screenshot on a Samsung device is by swiping your palm across the screen. Palm swipe to capture can be turned on under Settings > Advanced features > Motions and gestures. To take a screenshot, swipe the edge of your hand across the screen from left to right.
Note, however, that this technique is a little tricky and takes a few tries to master, not to mention how messy your screen gets if your hands are not dry.
Using the Smart Select Edge Panel
Edge panels on Samsung devices can be set up and used for a variety of tasks. One of these tasks is taking screenshots on Samsung devices. To take screenshots using the edge panel, do the following:
● Toggle it on by going to Settings > Display > Edge panels.
● Choose the Smart select panel from the Panels menu. Open the edge panel after adding it and swipe until you reach the Smart select panel.
● Choose either Rectangle or Oval, then drag to select the area to screenshot. Tap the Done button, then the Savebutton (the down arrow).
Use of the Quick Settings Panel
One of the updated features in One UI 5.1 is the one-tap ability to take screenshots directly from the Quick Settings panel, which is probably simpler than the previous method.
To do so:
● Customize the Quick Settings panel and add the Take screenshot button from the available buttons grid to it.
● After you’ve added it, press the button to take a screenshot.
● To view screenshot settings you might want to modify, you can also long-press the button.
Ask Google Assistant or Bixby
Google Assistant is standard on all Android phones, but Samsung phones also include Bixby, an alternative voice assistant. To take a screenshot on Samsung devices without having to use your hands, you can simply say “Hey Google, take a screenshot” or “Hey Bixby, take a screenshot,” and the assistant will do just that.
These instructions can be combined with others, such as “Hey Bixby, take a screenshot and share on Instagram.” If the assistant does not reply to your voice, you can retrain Bixby in the settings to recognize your voice.
Use the S Pen
You can also take a screenshot with a Samsung phone that has a S Pen stylus built in, such as the Galaxy S22 Ultra or the Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Take the S Pen out of the device, select Screen write by tapping the Air command menu icon. This will result in a full screenshot. The screenshot can then, if desired, be edited using the tools on the screen. When finished, press the Save button.
Use Screenshot whole pages with Scroll Capture
You don’t have to take multiple screenshots on a Samsung device if you want to capture a long webpage or app. Instead, you can create a single large screenshot using Samsung’s Scroll Capture Feature.
A screenshot toolbar will show up at the bottom of the screen after taking a standard screenshot. Tap the Scroll Capture icon (two downward arrows that bounce) on this.
With a single tap, the page is scrolled down once and the screenshot is stitched to the bottom of the first. Continue tapping the icon until you’ve captured everything you want on the page.
How Do I Access My Samsung Screenshots?
After taking a screenshot on your Samsung phone or tablet, you may be wondering where it is saved and how you can access it. This is not difficult at all.
Open the Gallery app and choose Albums from the bottom menu. You will then see a Screenshots album, which you can manage just like any other photo album.
In conclusion, we hope you now understand how to take a screenshot on a Samsung phone or tablet. Choose the method that is the simplest and quickest for you, as they all produce the same result.
