Taking Screenshots on Your Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport

A screenshot is a snapshot of your device's screen that is saved as a photo. There are several ways to capture screenshots on your device. Screenshots are automatically saved to the Screenshots folder in the Gallery, as well as to the clipboard.

Capture Using Device Keys

You can capture a screenshot by pressing Home and Power/Lock at the same time for 1–2 seconds until a white border flashes around the edges of the screen. You will also hear a shutter sound or feel a vibration if your device is not muted, and notifications will display in the status bar and Notification Panel. 

If your screenshot failed, try again, ensuring you press both keys at the same time. 

Capture Using Palm Swipe

Capture a screenshot by touching the screen with the side of your hand and swiping across from left to right, or vice versa.
