How do I take a screenshot on my Samsung Galaxy device?

Most Samsung Galaxy devices allow screenshots by holding down the Volume down button and the power button at the same time.


You can also hold down the Home button and the power button at the same time.


Alternatively, use the side of your palm to swipe from left to right, or vice versa across the screen (make sure you have palm swiping enabled).



How do I enable the palm swipe feature?

If palm swiping isn't working on your device, check that it is enabled.


The path will differ slightly depending your model and operating system.


You can enable or disable palm swiping by going to:


Settings > Advanced Features > Palm swipe to capture

Settings > Motions and Gestures > Palm swipe to capture
