How To: Android Screen Shot

How to Take a Screen Shot with an Android Galaxy S

I’ve been trying to figure out how to take a screenshot on my Android Galaxy S phone for a while now. I found a number of “how to” guides online, but none of them worked for me.

I finally figured it out today so I wanted to share, just in case there are others having a hard time finding the answer.  (my phone is updated to Android 2.3 if that helps anyone)

To take a screenshot:

1. Hold down the “back” button. Which is the little curved arrow.

2. Press the power button (on the side of your phone).

A little white border will flash on the screen and some text will pop up saying that the screen was captured. In your files there should be a “ScreenCapture” folder with all of your screenshots.

I hope this helps some of you!

I am a musician. While assisting and volunteering my time to my fellow artist throughout Arizona, I have found a calling in sound. Through the process of video shooting and editing, I have found that I have a knack for being able to aid the storytelling through sound produced with my piano and Korg Kaossilator Pro. And because of this I have been sought out to help compose original scores for all types of videos. New genres both intrigue and push me to help increase my versatility in the music I create. In fact I welcome the challenges that may come from non-a-typical pieces. It is the feeling I put into each video piece, soundtrack, and score that strengthens the voice of the video maker.
