You can capture screenshots by pressing the Home key and the Volume Down key at the same time. The screen will flash indicating a screenshot capture. Depending on the Android version of your device, you may be able to utilise Smart Capture functions, where you can scroll capture, edit and share the screenshot with ease.

The screenshot will be copied to the clipboard and saved to the Screenshots folder in the Gallery app.
