The most common way to screenshot is to press the power and volume down buttons at the same time.

The screen should flash briefly and the image will be saved to your photos.

However, there are several other ways to screenshot on Samsung Galaxy devices depending on which one you have.

You can try holding down the side key and the volume down key, if power and volume doesn’t work.

Alternatively, pressing the power and home key at the same time may work.

Finally, Samsung suggests trying the palm swipe feature.

It says on its website: “If enabled, you can take a screenshot by swiping the edge of your hand across the screen from one side to the other.”

To enable this just go to ‘Settings’, ‘Advanced features’, ‘Motions and gestures’ and then turn on the ‘Palm swipe to capture’ toggle.

The Samsung website has a whole page titled “How To Take A Screenshot On A Galaxy Device?”.

If you’re still confused you can check it out and will also find a section to speak to Samsung for help.
