No matter which Samsung Galaxy phone you have, this method for taking a screenshot is the same, but it varies slightly depending on the model. Before you get one, you’ll need to locate the Power and Volume Down keys.

Typically, the volume keys are on the left and the power button is on the right. However, for some models, the positions of the keys may be reversed. Or, all the keys could be on the same side!

When you want to take a screenshot, just hold the Volume Down key and the Power key together. The screen will flash, indicating that a screenshot was captured.
