  • How to take a screenshot using Samsung’s Assistant Menu screenshot button.
  • How to take a screenshot using Samsung’s “Palm swipe to capture” gesture.

So, having said this, now let’s see how we take screenshots on our Galaxy A12 phones, using any of the three methods.

How to take screenshot using the “volume down” & power button

This is actually the easiest way of taking screenshots not just on Samsung smartphones alone, but generally on all Android smartphones.

And to do this, simply follow the steps below.

  • First of all, make sure that you’re currently on the page or screen that you want to take a screenshot of.
  • Now, quickly press and release the “volume down“, and press and release the “Power button” to take a screenshot (you need to do this very quickly).
    • Alternatively, you can also press and release the volume down & power button at once instead of pressing them one after the other.
  • And once you’ve gotten the combo right, the screenshot will be captured.

After taking the screenshot, you’ll get a roll of options at the bottom of your phone’s screen, and from there, you can quickly perform tasks like sharing the screenshot, cropping it, editing, or even taking a “scroll shot” by pressing the downward pointing arrow.

And that’s how you can take screenshots using the volume down and power button combination. But what if you’re finding it difficult to press both buttons at the right time?

Well, that’s where the second method comes in.
