Capture that weird message, high score, or malfunctioning app in a snap.
SOMETIMES YOU HAVE to capture that crazy text you received or send the IT guy a picture of what’s going wrong on your device. Knowing how to take a screenshot can save you a lot of explaining. Every operating system has a built-in method of capturing the screen. Some even allow you to capture specific portions or grab a scrolling screenshot. We’ll explain how.
How to Take a Screenshot on an iPhone or iPad
To capture a screenshot on your iPhone or iPad, press the Sleep/Wake and Volume Up buttons simultaneously. On older devices with a Home button, press the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons simultaneously.
When it works you will hear a capture noise if your sound is on and see a screenshot preview at the bottom left of the screen, where you can tap on it to edit, share, or delete.
How to Take a Screenshot on an Android Phone or Tablet
To capture a screenshot on an Android phone or tablet, press the Power and Volume Down buttons simultaneously.
When it works, you will hear a capture sound and see a screenshot preview at the bottom left of the screen, where you can tap on it to edit or share.
Some Android phone manufacturers offer a scrolling screenshot feature that can capture a whole webpage or message thread. They all have different names, but each involves taking a screenshot then tapping on a button when the preview appears. For example, on a Samsung phone, you should press the button with two arrows in a box to use Scroll Capture. Huawei has a similar option called Scrollshot, LG offers an Extended option, and OnePlus has Expanded Screenshot.
If your phone lacks this feature, consider a third-party app like Screen Master.
