Take Screenshots on Your Galaxy Tab A (New)

Want to share a funny conversation you had with a friend? Snap a screenshot and get the gang laughing. You can edit screenshots just like you edit photos. Learn how to Edit Your Photos to make them picture-perfect.

Use Device Keys to Capture a Screenshot

Your tablet makes it a cinch to take a screenshot. Capture them at will by following these steps:

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

Once you take a screenshot, you can view it immediately through the Notification Panel.

  1. To take action directly from the Notification Panel, swipe down the Screenshot captured notification.  

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

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

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