This is how to do screenshots on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+
Once you know how this is a feature you are likely going to use a lot on your cell phone. It is without a doubt the easiest way of capturing what happens on your phone’s screen.
There are apps that helps you do this, but once I show you how to do it you will likely agree that this is the easiest thing in the world, and never even consider downloading anything to get this job done.
In this tutorial I will show you how to easily do a screenshot on the new flagship smartphones from Samsung, the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 plus.
How to screenshot on the Galaxy S8 and S8+
- Press and hold the power button and the volume down button simultaneously.
- Keep them pressed until your phone gives you feedback in the form of either a flash, a sound or a vibration ( Depending on your volume settings at the time )
To see the screenshot just pull down the notification area by placing your finger at the very top of the screen and pull down. There you will find a thumbnail of your image. Press it to open it in your gallery app.
If you took lots of screenshots or you removed the thumb from the notification area, you can find the newly created images in your gallery app. If you don’t have a shortcut to your gallery on the home screen, open the apps drawer and locate the gallery app inside. ( To open the app drawer on one of these phones simply swipe up or down on your phone’s home screen ).
A nice new feature of these new phones is that if you screenshot is of a web page and it’s taken from the Samsung browser or Chrome, the url is stored with the picture. So now you can easily access the URL the screenshot originated from.
Another feature that can come in handy is that you can easily expand your screenshot downwards on a webpage so that you can capture a whole article in a single image. Once the shot has been done press the “scroll capture” button in the lower left corner as many times as you want until you are satisfied you have what you want.
