Save and Share 

When you’ve taken your screenshot, you can make a shortcut to it on the notification board. Tap it, and you’ll have the option to share or edit.

Tap Screenshots, and flip the Backup and sync button. From that point forward, all of your screen captures will be backed-up to your camera roll in Google Photos.

Android Froyo Smartphones and older 

In case you happen to have a pre-Gingerbread Android 2.3 smartphone lying around, taking a screen capture is a challenging assignment. Froyo users will require a PC, a USB link, some Android expertise, and third-party software.

Install the Software 

Back then, Google figured just engineers would be keen on catching Android screengrabs, so you’ll need to act like one. Download and install the free Android SDK (software development kit). Visit the website and make certain to get the right version for your OS.

The software additionally requires Java. Macintosh OS X has the correct instruments already included. Windows users have to download the Java Development Kit. Install Java and the Android SDK downloads.

Start the SDK Manager from the Android SDK download. (In Windows, whenever asked, pick Extract All.) Accept the terms, and click Install. The SDK will download more bundles and afterward update itself with the most recent version. This procedure can take around 30 minutes, depending on your PC and the internet speed.

Open DDMS (Dalvik Debug Monitor) inside the Android SDK Tools folder. The software will open the console for a minute and afterward dispatch a graphical interface in another window. Give it a minute, yet on the off chance that it stops and there is by all accounts an error at first – as happened to me on my test system – take a stab at running DDMS once more.

On the Android phone, open Setting > Application settings > Development > and select USB debugging. Then connect the Android smartphone to your PC.Then connect the Android smartphone to your PC.

In Windows, if the Android doesn’t show up as a posting in the Dalvik Debug Monitor application, go to the Device Manager. Right-click the Android phone and select Update Driver Software. Select the Browse my PC for driver programming option, then click Browse and explore to the USB driver folder inside the Android SDK envelope. Click on Next. Affirm the accompanying brief to Install the driver. Come back to the Dalvik Debug Monitor; your Droid should now be recorded.

With either OS, if your Android device, despite everything failed to appear in the Dalvik Debug Monitor, check that you set it for USB debugging mode. Likewise, drag the menu down from the top of the Android screen and pick the USB connection. In many examples, you’ll need USB Mass Storage to be chosen. (I needed to perform these steps on a Droid X since it set itself up in PC Mode first.) But attempt PC Mode if the software isn’t finding your Android; that may take care of the issue.

On your PC, click the smartphone symbol in the upper-left segment to choose your Android. On the Android, set up the minute you need to capture. On the PC, pick Device, Screen catch. Click Save. Rehash the procedure for extra screen captures as required.

Get to the Root

In case you’re a smart Android fan, you can shoot screengrabs without attaching to a PC by any means. However, to use this method, you’ll need to root your smartphone.

Generally, the Android OS hinders screen capture applications from working, since they waste around with more permissions. The rooting procedure gives superuser capacities, in any case, allowing you permission to do anything you need.

After rooting, scan the Android Marketplace for Screenshot to discover different applications, for example, Screenshot It and Screenshot. You’ll activate screen captures with a timer, by shaking the phone, or by means of another command, and the application will, at that point, catch your gadget screen.

Simple, isn’t that so?
