It's one of the most awesome features of an Android device: taking a screenshot. The essential function can be located on any device, but each company can simply add a twist and they actually do their things differently and might add some other things to make the screenshot steps more useful and powerful. Samsung goes beyond and above on the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ to give you many unique ways to take a screenshot, plus extra tips to take a scrolling list and make fast edits after taking the screenshots.
Here are all the steps you can use to take, share and edit screenshots on the Galaxy S9:
- Scrolling capture
- Button combo screenshot
- Bixby Voice
- Palm swipe screenshot
Whether you carry out a screenshot with the keys combination or the palm swipe, you'll sometimes see an extra alternative in that edit bar at the bottom: "scroll capture." This alternative allows you to automatically move (in applications that vertically scroll) and join together different screenshots into one super-long screenshot.
- Tap and open the content you want to capture on your screen.
- Whatever application you have open, it should be able to vertically move — take note that in other to begin this steps at the top of what you wish to screenshot since the moving only goes downward.
- Make use of the key combo or the palm swipe to execute screenshot.
- Click scroll capture at the base of the screenshot edit menu.
- Click scroll capture until you've seen everything in the application that you want to capture.
- The extra-long scrolling screenshot will automatically save in the same way as others — you can now simply crop, edit and share it.
