Two Easy and Free Ways to Take a Screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus

You can take a screenshot on your Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus without having to download or buy an app. In fact, there are two ways you can immediately use without having to change any setting in your phone. That’s what I’m going to show you in this post.

Volume Down + Power Combo

The first one can be done by pressing the Volume Down button and the Power key at the same time. The screen will flash as a sign that a screenshot has already been taken. You will then see the screenshot controls at the bottom of the screen which you can use to edit your screenshot.

You can also view it right from the notification panel, which you will have to pull down first.

The Palm Swipe

The second method can be done by swiping from one edge of the screen to the other using the side of your palm.

What you need is a very light contact between the side of your palm and the screen and swipe from one side to the other in one fluid motion.

Just like the previous method, the screen will flash and screenshot controls appear at the bottom of the screen once the screenshot is taken.

This method is enabled out of the box so you don’t have to go to Settings and into other sub-menu to enable it.

Another way to find your screenshots is by opening My Files, tap Internal Storage, DCIM, and then Screenshots.

To wrap it up, you can take a screenshot by pressing the volume down and power keys at the same time or swipe the side of your palm from one edge of the screen to the other.
