Galaxy Camera: How Do I take Screenshots?

Last Update date : Nov 23. 2020


Your mobile device supports a palm swipe to capture screenshot gesture. You can turn this feature on in the motion settings menu. Open the Notification Panel by swiping your finger from the top of the screen to the bottom, and touch Settings 1 > Motion. Touch the slider 1 to turn Motion on 1 . Scroll to and touch Palm swipe to capture to turn on this gesture. When the feature is on, a green check mark will appear. You can now capture a screenshot by touching the screen with the side of your hand and swiping across the screen from left to right or vice versa.
