There are 2 different methods and both of them are pretty simple but you should know the correct way to do it and that’s where this article comes in.
Steps to Take Screenshots on Samsung Galaxy S6
Method 1 – Using Motion and Gestures
If you didn’t know, then there’s a feature in your Galaxy S6 smartphone which allows you to capture a screenshot by simply moving your hand from one side of the phone to the other.
If this feature is disabled, then you need to enable it first. Follow the below steps to enable it:
- From your Home screen, go to the Apps drawer and then open Settings.
- Find Motion and Gestures and tap on it. It will be present in the Device tab.
- Now, select Palm Swipe to Capture.
- Finally, touch the slider to turn the feature from Off to On.
Once the feature is enabled, all you have to do is place your hand on one side of the screen and swipe it to the other side. If done correctly, the screen will be captured and saved on your phone.
Method 2 – Using Device Buttons
Now that you know how to use motion and gesture on your smartphone to capture the screen, it’s time to learn another very simple method to do it.
This method involved the physical buttons on your device. First of all, locate the Home button on the bottom of your phone and the Lock/Power button at the side of your phone.
Now, press and hold Home button and Power/Lock button together for 2-3 seconds until you hear the camera shutter sound and see the image getting captured on the screen.
How to View the Captured Screenshots?
When you capture a screenshot, it will give you a notification in your notification bar. You can click on the image directly from there to view it.
However, if you would like to know where all these captured images are stored, then you can go to Gallery in your phone, select Albums from the drop-down menu and then look for the folder named Screenshots.
Also, you can access these screenshots by going to the File Manager app, then selecting the internal storage and going to the Pictures folder where you will find the Screenshots folder containing all the images you captured.
