How to take screenshot in Samsung M12, with the “volume down” & power buttons

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 it, or even taking a “scroll shot” by pressing the downward pointing arrow.

And that’s for how to 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.

How to take a screenshot by using Samsung’s Assistant menu button
