How do I Take Screenshots on My Samsung Galaxy Tab S?

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

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Use Device Keys to Capture Screenshot

  1. To capture a screenshot of the displayed screen, press and hold the Home and Power buttons simultaneously.



  2. When the screenshot is captured, the screen will flash as it makes a camera shutter like sound and the Screenshot icon will appear on the Notification bar.

View the Captured Screenshots

The screenshot can be viewed immediately through the Notification Panel.

  1. To take action directly from the Notification Panel, touch SHARE, EDIT, OR DELETE.


  2. To open the screenshot, touch the Screenshot captured notification.


  3. To view your screenshots at any time, navigate to Apps > Gallery.


Your Gallery consists of various sorting options (Time, Albums, Events, Categories). If your sorting option is not set to Time, a Screenshots folder will appear automatically where you can access your screenshots.

Share Screenshots from Your Gallery

  1. Navigate to Apps > Gallery.


  2. Select the photo you want to share.


  3. Touch the Share icon. Then, select from the various sharing options.
