Galaxy Tab S3: How Do I take screenshots on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S3(SM-T820)?

Last Update Date : Apr 12. 2018


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 into the Screenshots folder in the Gallery, as well as to the clipboard.

Capture a Screenshot Using Device Buttons

You can capture a screenshot by simultaneously pressing the Home Home and the Power/Lock buttons for 1–2 seconds. A blue border will flash around the edges of the screen to confirm the screenshot is taken. The screenshot will be copied to the clipboard and saved to the Screenshots folder in the Gallery application.

Note: Taking a screenshot using the device's buttons requires a little bit of training. The main difficulty is to press the two buttons at the same time. We guarantee it works as we used it to take the screenshots that illustrate this page. Just keep trying!

Capture a Screenshot Using Motion Gestures

1. From the Home screen, touch Apps Apps.

2. Touch Settings Settings.
