Taking a screenshot using an Android, Windows, or Mac device

In this article:

A. Using an Android device
B. Using a Windows device
C. Using a Mac (OSX) device


A. Using an Android device

  • 1 Navigate to the screen or image you want to capture.
  • 2 Press the Power/Lock and Volume Down buttons at the same time for 1-2 seconds.
    • If pressing these two buttons doesn’t take the screenshot, then try pressing the Power/Lock and Home buttons at the same time for 1-2 seconds.
  • 3 After you release both buttons (Power/Lock + Volume down) or (Power/Lock + Home), you’ll know your screen has been “captured” if:
    • you see a copy of your screen display shrink into a frame,
    • you hear a camera shutter sound (not on all devices), and/or
    • a notification bar appears (on devices with Notification capability)
  • 4 If no “capture” occurs, try again a few times until you get it right. Sometimes it takes a little practice.
  • 5 Remember, you must press the two physical buttons at the same time, otherwise it will not work. If you see the result of pressing just one of the buttons (usually the one you pressed first), or no result at all, then you did not press them at the same time. Try it again.
  • 6 Open the screenshot. There are various ways to do this, depending on the particular device and Android version.
    • Open the Gallery app, then open the Screenshots folder.
      • Tap on each screenshot to view it in full screen.
      • From there you can share it, remove it, or perform other actions available on your device.
    • Look in your Notifications screen (Android 4.2 and later):
      • For each screenshot taken, there will be one notification entry
        (a bar or line).
      • Tap each screenshot’s notification entry to view it and take further
        action(s).

B. Using a Windows device Using Windows 7, 8, and 10.

  • 1 Navigate to the screen or image you want to capture.
  • 2 Press the “Print Screen” (Prt Sc/Prnt Scrn/or Print Scrn) key on your keyboard.
    • This will automatically capture an image of your entire screen and copy it to the clipboard.
  • 3 Paste the screenshot to Paint.
    • Open Paint
    • Press the Ctrl+V buttons to paste the image onto the blank canvas
      • You can also open the Edit menu and select Paste, or right-click on the canvas and select Paste.
  • 4 Click File, then Save to set the name and file type of the image. The most common file types are JPG and PNG. The recommended format for screenshots is PNG, due to the high quality and small file size.
  • 5 Note: You can also paste the screenshot into other programs, such as Word or into the body of an email. Simply open the program that you want to paste the image into and press Ctrl + V.

C. Using a Mac (OSX) device

  • 1 Press Command (⌘)-Shift-3.
  • 2 Find the screenshot as a .png file on your desktop.
