  • Put your hand on the screen so that your thumb is facing away from the screen.
  • Swipe your hand from left to right or vice versa to capture the screenshot. You will hear the camera shutter sound along with the animation flash, which means that the screenshot is captured.

The feature is automatically enabled in your phone and sometimes creates problems while doing some important work.

So, to disable this feature follow these quick and simple steps:

  • Go to the “Settings” app from the home screen or the notification panel.
  • Scroll down until you see the “Motion” option. Under the motion, choose the option “Motions and gestures.”
  • Here you need to click on the “Palm swipe to capture” option.
  • Hit the “Toggle button” from blue to grey, to turn off this setting.

Take A Screenshot On Galaxy S6 Using The Assistant Menu

This is again the new method that Samsung offers for/with new smartphones for taking screenshots. The assistant menu will always be with you on the screen when it is activated.
To activate the assistant menu, you need to follow the below instructions:

“Go to the Settings menu > Accessibility > Dexterity and interaction > Assistant menu.”

That’s all. Now all you need to do is just enable the assistance tool, and it will always appear on your screen. You need to tap the “icon” and choose the “screenshot” option. The screenshot will automatically be taken and saved into the gallery.

Note: All the mentioned methods are easy to go with and are working. You’re free to opt for the one you think you’re most comfortable with.
