    Mine will save screenshot in the other 2 methods other than the S pen. Ive had this problem since update to 5.0. Its not tooo inconvenient, but what IS inconvenient is that when I take a screenshot, it automatically saves that screenshot. I dont mind THAT, but when I have to draw/crop the screenshot, I press save, then I have 2 screenshots. The before & after editing. Before the update, I was a happy camper saving all my screenshots ONLY after all editing was done. No multiple screenshots. How do I go back to save screenshot only after done editing?

      I’M having the same problem
      NOT being able to do creek shots with the S Pen is a pain…Hope we get an answer to our dilema..
      I wish I could UN UPDATE my Note 3…

  2. Your grammar is horrible, Bertil….

    • I know, and I’m truly sorry.
      Hopefully you found the tutorial helpful enough to look past my obvious flaws in the grammar department.

        Great tutorial….too many grammar police on the internet …My apologies for that .Thanks for the tutorial

  3. all the features are working but when im taking a screen shot it opens up in edit mode n dosnt save to the gallery automatically i have to manually save each n every screen shot
    can u show me the setting to get my screen shots saved directly in my gallery ?

  4. It’s easy to screen shot holding the phone with your left hand posing the power button with left middle finger while pressing home with right thumb. .. I’ve never had it give me issues and I find it easier if you want to share cause you dint have to do it right then it saves it in your notification list and you can do what you like then including edit delete or share like to use the stylus for cutting out images or parts of an article. .. hold button down and draw complete outline around what you want then it gives options for what you want to do with it

  5. I found it really well guiding note.
    thanx a lot

  6. yes..It’s working I used S-pen..nice…thank you for the post u shared…keep fighting

  7. Works on mine, but you have to hold them both down at the exact same time for about 2 seconds.

  8. @billyanalog. I tried pressing the power and home button and it doesn’t work. Thank you for posting this!! I’ve been trying to figure it out!!

    • Thanks for the feedback. To bad the power and home button combo doesn’t work on the note 3. It’s in my opinion the easiest way of doing screenshots.

  9. Has anyone tried pressing and holding the power and home button to screenshot on the Note 3. I would love to hear if that one works to.
