Guide To Take A Screenshot On Galaxy S9 Using Buttons

Using Buttons

This is the most simple way of taking a screenshot in all Samsung Galaxy series. Every one of you should be aware of this method, and for the new users, here are the steps:

  • Open the page that you want to capture.
  • Press and hold the “Volume down key + Power button” simultaneously until you hear a camera shutter sound and a white flash around the screen.
  • If you want to edit the screenshot just after it is captured, then “swipe the notification panel” you can see the smaller version of the screenshot. From there, you can easily “share, delete or edit” your newly captured screenshot.
  • Furthermore, if you dismiss the notification, you can find the screenshot either in the “gallery app” under the “screenshot folder” or in “Google Photos.”
