How to Take a Screenshot on Samsung: The 2023 Snap Guide
Want to capture something golden on your Samsung screen?
Well, you'll be good to go with a quick palm swipe, or a press of the volume and power buttons.
But wait, there's more to it! Intrigued?
Scroll down, and let's unravel the tapestry of screenshotting on your Samsung device.
Oh! And is your Samsung device near its renewal date? Well, go ahead and bookmark our refurbished Galaxy phones for your future viewing. Snag a deal and keep on screenshotting with ease.
Screenshots are like digital mementoes. They're that 21st-century scrapbook where you save articles, memes, or even an e-ticket for future reference.
And, that's not all.
Screenshots allow you to share info instantly. Using them, you can effortlessly capture tantalising bits of information and whisk them into your group chats without breaking a sweat.
Plus, they're your virtual notepad. Forget post-its or diaries; screenshot it and save it in your gallery app.
What a handy little feature.
Samsung isn't your regular Android device. It has something unique: advanced features like palm swipe and smart capture. Let's compare that to other devices, shall we?
On iPhones, for instance, you're mostly stuck with the old "press-the-buttons" method. Yes, it works, but it doesn't come close to the screenshot toolbar on Samsung devices.
With Samsung's smart select panel, you can even draw around the part you want to capture. How cool is that?
Swipe, tap, and voila—you have options for not just screenshots but also for screen recording and even creating GIFs!
Ah, the oldie but goodie— simply hit those buttons together. To do this, just:
Tap save, and you're done!
Note: The same can also be done by pressing both the home and power button at the same time.
Either way, your screenshot will automatically save to your photos app for future reference.
If you're flashy, Samsung has just the feature for you: palm swipe to capture.
Watch for the flash and listen for the audible cue, tipping you off that your screenshot is in the bag.
All done! Your screenshot is now all saved ready to be sent or edited in the photos app.
But what steals the show is the Smart Select Panel. To unlock this, follow these simple steps:
Drag those corners to frame the piece of screen you want to immortalise. Hit Done.
Want to stash your screenshot away? Tap that downward-pointing arrow to whisk the image into your Samsung Galaxy's Gallery app.
This option doesn't just let you take a screenshot; it opens the door to instant editing. Add doodles, highlight text, or even create GIFs.
Good to Know: While discussing screen manoeuvres, did you know you can rotate the screen on an iPhone? Check out our guide on how to rotate the screen on an iPhone now.
Yep, you heard that right. Your Samsung phone's not just smart, it's voice-activated-screen-capturing smart.
Say "Hey Bixby" or "Hey Google," and capture what you're viewing without you working anything more than your vocal cords.
Just enable Bixby or Google Assistant, say, "Take a screenshot," and let your little friend do all the work.
You're on a page longer than a receipt and want to capture the entire thing? Cue in the scroll capture button.
After you've taken your initial screenshot using any of the methods we've talked about, hit the scroll capture button on the screenshot toolbar that pops up.
The screen will scroll automatically, stitching together a screenshot long enough to cover an entire page.
To perfect this technique, you can pause and resume to get the exact capture you desire. It's like a rolling camera, but for screenshots!
A few seconds will master this feature, and you’ll be capturing entire page content like a professional.
