HTC screenshot always with Google logo at the bottom – Solved

If you take a screenshot with an Android smartphone from HTC, you might get a Google character at the bottom of the screenshot.

That's of course not the point and that's why we'd like to explain to you what the cause is and what you can do about it. Please proceed as follows:

Cause for the Google sign in a screenshot

If you take a screenshot with your HTC smartphone, then you probably press the Home button and the Power button.

Now, if you press the Home button for a long time, the Google Assistant or Google Now will open. This is the Google sign you will see on your screenshot later.

To solve this, there is now a simple method:

Use an alternative key combination for Screenhot on your HTC smartphone. We recommend that you simply select a different key combination.

This works as follows: Press and hold:

  • Power On/ Off
  • Button Volume Quieter Button

This will stop you from using the home button on your HTC smartphone and will prevent you from accidentally activating the Google Assistant.

We hope that this will also help you to make screen shots with the HTC where no Google icon is visible.
