Method 1: To take a screenshot using the hotkey combination

Display the application or screen content you want to capture. Press and hold the following keys for about 2 seconds:

  • Volume button Quiet
  • On/Off button

You should now hear the shutter sound of the camera together with a short, flashing animation. This means that the screenshot was successful.

Method 2: Create screenshot by wiping

Samsung has added another cool feature to its smartphones for taking screenshots. Wiping via the display. And this works as follows:

  • Tilt your hand a little to the side so that your thumb is pointing away from the screen.
  • Brush your entire hand over the screen from left to right.

As with the other method, you will hear the shutter sound and see a short animation on the screen.

This method is enabled by default, but you can disable it in the settings,

1. Go to the Settings menu.

2. Scroll down to Advanced Features and select Screenshot.

3. Deactivate the switch or activate it
