how to take a screenshot on samsung s7

It's time to get down to the really important stuff — like how to take a screenshot on the Galaxy S7.

So let's take a quick look at the methods Samsung uses for taking a screenshot on the Galaxy S7.



Method 1: How to take a screenshot using the button shortcut

This is the tried-and-true method for taking a screenshot on Galaxy S phones.
  1. Get the app or screen that you want to capture ready to go.
  2. Press and hold the home button and the power button at the same time. It can be a bit of a stretch on these larger phones, but it works just fine. You'll hear the camera shutter sound, along with a short flashing animation, and that's how you know you're good to go.
  3. You'll now be able to see the screenshot in the Gallery app, or in Samsung's built-in "My Files" file browser, or in Google Photos, if you use that instead.
  4. If you need to find the screenshots from a command line or through the Android File Transfer tool, they'll be in /pictures/screenshots.

Method 2: How to take a screenshot by swiping the screen

Samsung's got another cool feature in its smartphones for taking screenshots. And some of us think it's actually the easier way to take a screenshot when compared to the button method. (Though it does get a little more tricky if you're using the larger Galaxy S7 edge.)
  1. Tilt your hand to the side a little, so your thumb is pointing away from the screen.
  2. Swipe your entire hand across the screen in either direction — left to right or right to left, it's your call.
Just like in the other method you'll hear the shutter sound and see a short on-screen animation.

This method is enabled by default, but you can turn it off in the settings if you prefer, or if you find you're accidentally taking screenshots.
  1. Go into the settings menu.
  2. Scroll down to "Motion" and choose "Motions and gestures."
  3. Tap "Palm swipe to capture."
  4. Hit the toggle button from on to off.

Method 3: How to take a scrolling screenshot on the Galaxy S7



Lots of things you'll want to take a screenshot of may be more than just one screen deep. Like a web page, for instance. To that end, Samsung has borrowed and adapted a feature from the Galaxy Note 5.
  1. Take a screenshot, as before.
  2. Tap the "Capture more" option to scroll down and grab more of the screen. 
  3. Keep on tapping until you've got what you need. 
Do be warned: These screenshots can get very large. Samsung helps with this somewhat. Single-screen grabs are output at full resolution — 1440x2560. But once you start adding them, the width is downscaled to 1080px, and the whole smash is saved as a JPEG and instead of a PNG.
