Today I got my hands on the new Samsung Galaxy S4 (AT&T). I wanted to test how to take a screenshot. For sometime now I have used my rooted Galaxy S2 with CyanogenMod which allowed for me to simply press the power button and get a menu context which allowed me to take the screenshot of my choice. Now with a stock out of the box device there isn’t a menu to do this, but rest assured there is a way and best of all its simple to do.
To take a screen shot with the Samsung Galaxy S4 you simple do the following.
- HOLD down the POWER button and the HOME button at the same time.
- Now go look for your screenshot to upload or email
If look for it you can find them in the directory /Pictures/Screenshots, or simply use the Gallery app.
Wait… I’m not done. I found another way to take them also. This involves using the new Palm Motion feature which allows you to wave your hand magically over the Galaxy S4 to take the shot.
You enable this setting by:
Clicking on the MENU button and select SETTINGS
On the top menu bar, selection the “My Device” tab. Then select “Motion and Gestures”
Under “Palm Motion” settings, check “Capture Screen” button is set to ON.
