Take Screenshot on Android with Shortcuts

Take Screenshot on Android with Shortcuts

--Friday, May. 13, 2016
Taking a screenshot of your Android device can sometimes be confusing as operations vary from phone to phone. Here we separately introduce some shortcuts to take screenshot on Android 2.3 and lower, and Android 4.0 and above.

Method 1. Take Screenshot on Android 4.0 and Newer

If your Android phone runs on Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) or above, it is available to capture screenshot with the built-in screenshot feature. Just press the Volume Down button + Power buttons at the same time. Hold for a second or more till you hear the camera shutter button or see the message "Saving screenshot".

Press Power and Home Key

Method 2. Capture Screenshot on Android 2.3 and Earlier

If you are using a device works on Android 2.3 or earlier except some certain devices like Samsung phones, unfortunately you may fail capture screenshot by pressing the combination of physical buttons. But it varies from phone to phone.

If your phone comes with no shortcut built-in, you will need to download a program like Android Manager and take screenshot with the help of the tool.

Step 1. Run Android Manager
Download and install Android Manager for Windows or Android Manager for Mac on your computer. Then open the program and select "Android". After that, connect your Android phone to the computer via USB debugging or Wi-Fi.
