Want to capture a moment on your phone by taking a screenshot? Here’s how.
Whenever you get a new phone, there’s always a bit of a learning curve. Some features, like taking a screenshot, might work differently. Today, we’re going to look at how to take a screenshot on your Samsung Galaxy S21.
New Samsung users may be wondering how to use some of the features available on the Galaxy S21.
The latest couple of versions of the Galaxy has switched up some of the commands to use some features, mostly in an effort to promote the Galaxy AI, Bixby.
One of the features that changed slightly in recent years is the screenshot ability. Samsung makes it fairly simple to screenshot and share images on the Galaxy S21. But you have to know the right buttons.
So, how do you screenshot on the Galaxy S21?
The Galaxy S21 has three buttons on the right side, which you can use for a variety of different functions.
What used to be known to most as the power button, Samsung now calls the Side Button. Additionally, there are two volume buttons, directly above the Side Key.
In order to take a screenshot, users must press the Side Key as well as the “down” volume key simultaneously.
It is important to note that this is just a press because holding this combination of buttons brings up the power menu on the Galaxy S21.
