How To Do The Galaxy S10 Screenshot

There are a number of ways to do the Samsung Galaxy S10 screenshot and that’s what we’re going to show you in this post. Without using any third-party application, you already have at least three methods you can use in taking screenshots on your phone.

The first method is by using the hardware keys. For this, you don’t have to use the touchscreen to be able to capture what’s on the screen of your device.

The second is by using almost the entire screen. You will have to swipe from one edge to the other, as if you’re photocopying the screen.

And the last is the method that allows you to capture a rolling screen that allows you to do a very, very long screenshot. This one will be very useful if you’re trying to capture long contents from a webpage.

We’ve also provided a bonus method at the end. It’s seldom used but you can actually capture contents on the screen with it. So continue reading as this article maybe able to help you.

Method 1: Taking a screenshot on Galaxy S10 using hardware buttons

This is the simplest way to capture the screen on your Samsung Galaxy S10. You may not get it the first time so all you have to do it practice a few more times. After that, you’ll appreciate this method for its ease. Here are the steps to take a screenshot using hardware keys:

  1. Make sure to open the application or content you want to take a screenshot of.
  2. Now press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons together for about 2 seconds.
  3. If successful, you will see a quick animation and hear a feedback sound that will show that a screenshot was just taken. A black bar will also appear at the bottom of the screen.

Method 2: Take a screenshot on Galaxy S10 using Palm swipe to capture

This method requires setting up first. Once you’ve completed the setup, all you have to do is is to run your palm over the screen. Here’s what you need to do exactly:

  1. You need to activate the gesture itself before you can actually use it. In order to do so, go into the Settings app and select the Advanced features.
  2. From advanced features section, tap Motions and gestures.
  3. Tap Palm Swipe to capture.
  4. Toggle the switch for Palm Swipe to capture.
  5. Close the settings app and prepare the screen or app you want to capture.
  6. Swipe the edge of your hand horizontally from right to left or left to right, and from edge to edge. Your hand must remain in contact with the screen to successfully do a screenshot.

You can capture a screenshot with this method either by swiping from the right to left, or from left to right. However, there are times when you do the latter that the Edge Panel will pop up and may mess the process up.

Method 3: Take screenshots on Galaxy S10 using Scroll capture

If you’re trying to capture screenshots of long articles or pictures, you can do so by using this method. Like Palm Swipe to capture, this option needs setting up first. Once you’ve done that, you can then go ahead and capture screenshots. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Activate this method first. Open Settings app, go to Advanced settings, and enable Smart capture. This should give you the option to tap Scroll capture from the options that appear once you’ve taken the screenshot.
  2. Close the settings app and prepare the screen or app you want to capture.
  3. Begin capturing the screen by tapping on “Scroll capture” from the options that appear.
  4. Keep tapping the button until you finished capturing the content.

Bonus method: Smart Select

This method is seldom used but did you know you can also capture screenshots using this method. You need to make sure the Edge Panels are enabled. Open Settings and navigate to Display > Edge screen > enable Edge Panels.

Once it’s enabled, go back to the Home screen and pull the Edge Panel on the right edge. Tap the Settings icon to edit it, and then select Smart Select.

  1. To take a screenshot, open the content you want to capture.
  2. Pull the Edge Panel out and tap the shape you want to use.
  3. Select the part of the screen you want to capture and tap Done and that’s it!

How to view your screenshots

Viewing your screenshots is just as easy. All you need to do after capturing a screenshot using any of the methods above is by tapping on the preview that appears. In the same set of options at the bottom, you should be able to edit the image.

Alternatively, you can open the Gallery app and open the Screenshots folder to view your screenshots.
