Taking a screenshot on Android is easy, but the process isn't the same for every device.
- On many Samsung phones, you can press the Home and Power buttons at the same time to take a screenshot.
- On some phones the 'Take a screenshot' option is available from the Power off menu. Press and hold the power button for 1 to 2 seconds until the power options screen appears. If the option is available select 'Take a Screenshot'. It will take a screenshot of whatever is behind this menu.
- One way to take a screenshot on Android 4.0 is to simply press and hold your smartphone's power and volume down button at the same time for 1 to 2 seconds. On some phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, S4 and S5, you will instead need to combine the volume down button with the Home button. You should then hear a shutter noise and the screen will flash; there will also be a screenshot notification in the drop-down notification bar from which you can access your screenshot.
