I accidentally deleted my screenshots. Worse still, I didn't back them up or sync them anywhere, then I think they're pretty much gone. I am wondering if there are the other ways to get them back? Please help.

Have you come across the situiation as the users above? If you did, so what is your solution at that time? And this article would introduce a really simple way to solve this delemma in part 2, please check it out and you can compare it to your method.

Part 1. Know More About Screenshot

To take a screenshot on your Android, you would hold the two button (for most of the Android): Home button and the Power button, which is simple enough and you don't even have to ask how to make it. Tips: The path of the screenshots you take on Android would be “/storage/emulated/0/screenshot" (the location would be a little bit different on different Android phone).

However, there may be some reasons that you are not able to take a screenshot in a way you usually do:

1. There is something wrong with buttons you need to press when you take a screenshot. For example, the Home button couldn’t work properly on your Android.

2. You need to take tons of screenshots and save them on computer. It is not really convenient to hold the buttons each time you do the job and then transfer them to your computer.

Fortunalty, you can get rid of these limits with the help of Android Manager program to take screenshot of your Android directly on PC in one click.
