Where is screenshot

#1
Hi !
On my old phone, whenever I wanted to take a screenshot of my screen, I just pressed the power button until a menu popped up with functionalities like "Power off", "Reboot", "Airplane mode" and most importantly "Screenshot".

I cannot find this option on my new phone, anyone have an idea ?

The first thing is to tell us what is your phone, is an android an iPhone, or an old phone as Nokia 3310.
On the new phones you can capture a screenshot by simultaneously pressing home and the power/lock for a few seconds, I have a Samsung Galaxys7 and this is the procedure I am using.

Depending on the kind of Android device you are using, there are ways to get a screen shot.

You can press the power button with either the + or - sign of the volume and the device would take a screen shot.

You can scroll down the phone head bar and you will see the screen shot tab, just tap it and it would take a screen shot.

It differs with the specific android brand and model you are using, some are from the power button + the volume key plus or minus and some are in the power button and home key.

What's the brand and model of your phone? To do screenshots for new models,just press the power button and low volume button simultaneously. Hope this will help.

Taking a screenshot depends on the model of the phone. Usually it's a combination of pressing the power and volume keys. For my Oppo phone, there is a feature called "gesture screenshot" where you can take a screenshot by swiping three fingers on your screen downwards.

Hi, it depends with your phone's features so I suggest to search for steps only. For example, "How to do a sceenshot on iPhone". You can also directly check the manual and find the screenshot section. Make sure to double check the storage so you can easily locate it. You can do it!

It depends on what is your phone model. In my case my phone is HTC Evo and i don't have that option when i am trying to do screenshot on my phone screen. Why don't you try to press the power button and the upper volume of your phone whenever your trying to take a screenshot. or try to check your settings on how to capture your phone screen in different ways,

if you push the power button alone i doubt if you could execute an screen shot.If i were you just try to find the manual of your old phone,and there read the instruction on how to do an screen shot.But if you lost the manual operation of your old phone and can not find it.Just google the brand name of your phone an ask for online manual operation of your phone.

What works for me, is holding down the volume up and power button. That makes a screenshot on my Huawei P10 Mini. Then I just open up my galaxy and tap the screenshot folder, where I will find my screenshot, as well as my other screenshots. It was quite annoying at first, because holding down the power button used to give me the option for a screenshot, but this one will only give me the option to shut down or restart my smartphone. I had to figure it myself, but the way I need to do it now works faster, so I'm no longer complaining.

Try googling out that, how to take screenshot in your phone(brand and model).

As every smartphone has different option to take selfies.

Or try some apps which allows taking screenshots like ScreenMaster, Screen Touch etc
