How to Take a screenshot using Your Android Devices

Hi!

We've provided a guide below to assist you with taking a screenshot on ANY of your Android Devices 4.0, 4.1, or 4.2 device (that’s most of them).
For Galaxy S4, S3, or Note 2 using a hand swipe:


  1. Open Settings > Motion.
  2. Scroll down and find Hand Motion, then Palm Swipe to Capture, and tick the box.
  3. Close the menu and shape your hand like you are “chopping” the screen, set your hand on either side of the screen, then horizontally swipe across it – it doesn't matter which way. If you've done it correctly, you should hear the camera shutter and receive a notification that a picture has been saved to the gallery.

For Galaxy S4, S3 or Note Devices:
  1. Pressing the Power and Home buttons at the same time will also grab an image of the screen.
  2. This can be awkward to get right, so it’s important to remember to press both buttons at the same time, and hold them until the shutter sound is heard.
  3. Both these methods also work on the Samsung Galaxy Notes as well, and the second method is also applicable to the Galaxy S2.

For Other Android 4.0, 4.1, or 4.2 Devices:

  1. Press the Power button and Volume down key at the same time. Remember to hold them until you hear a click or see a screenshot sound. This works on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Google Nexus 7 tablet and should be the first method you try on an Android device. Remember to hold both keys down at precisely the same time, and hold until the shutter clicks.

For Kindle Fire Tablets/ Kindle Devices:

You can take screenshots from all Kindle Fire tablets using Eclipse, which is the standard desktop developer tool for Android.

  1. Connect the Kindle Fire tablet to your development computer as described in Setting Up Your Kindle Fire Tablet for Testing.
  2. In Eclipse, from the Window menu, select Open Perspective > Other... > DDMS.
  3. Select the Kindle Fire tablet, and click the camera icon. (If the tablet isn't shown, from the Window menu, select Navigation > Show View Menu > Reset adb.)
  4. The Device Screen Capture window displays the current screen as shown on the tablet. If the device screen saver is on, the window shows what would be on the screen if the screen saver were not running.
  5. Save the screen by clicking Save.
  6. When you are finished taking screenshots, click Done.

Note: You can also access this link for instructions on how to take screenshots from Amazon's official support site.

NOOK Tablet:

You can take a screenshot by holding down the "n" button then pressing the volume down key on the side.The picture/screenshot will be stored in a folder called "Screenshots". You can view it or download the next time you connect the device to your computer.

Windowsphone Devices:
Press and hold the Start and Power buttons at the same time. Your screenshots are automatically saved in the Screenshots album in[/SIZE] the Photos Hub.
