A screenshot is a snapshot of your device screen saved as a photo. There are several ways to capture screenshots on your device. After the screenshots are captured, they will be automatically saved to the Gallery.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Using device keys to capture a screenshot

1. To capture a screenshot of the displayed screen, press and hold the Power and Volume Down Keys simultaneously.
