Galaxy A20 - Take a screenshot (SM-A205W)
Whether you just reached a new level in a game or want to save an important document, you can capture it by taking a screenshot on your phone. It's super easy and convenient.
Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries.
No matter what Samsung phone you have, the steps for taking a screenshot will be exactly the same. Before you can take one, you'll need to locate the Power and Volume Down keys.
When you want to take a screenshot, just hold the Power and Volume Down keys simultaneously. The screen will flash, indicating that a screenshot was captured.
Wait, there's another way to take a screenshot. You can use palm swipe to take a screenshot without even pressing a button.
From Settings, search for and select Palm swipe to capture. Then, touch the switch next to Palm swipe to capture to turn this feature on. Now you'll be able to take a screenshot just by swiping the edge of your hand across your phone's screen.
No matter what, you'll be able to view your screenshots in the same place. Just navigate to your apps and open Gallery.
Touch Albums (at the bottom of the screen) and a collection of all the screenshots you've taken on your phone will be available in the Screenshots folder.
