Screenshots of smartphones?

For saving screenshots of tech or just trying to talk someone through their settings, I’ve been doing for awhile.

 

For my iPhone 7 it’s been home button and power button. Works with iPhone 8 backwards.

 

Sometimes it’s just easier to do a screenshot for problems, or showing someone what you see.

 

Especially if they may be using different tech.

 

If interested Android and iOS instructions are included in link.

THere is a short cut where you hit the down volume button and the home button at the same time to capture screenshots. At least I'm pretty sure that's what it is for iPhones. It is just muscle memory for me at this point.

Not sure other Android phones can do the same. Since Samsung Galaxy S7, you can do a multiple continuous screen capture. I think it is very useful.

For Windows 10, there is this built in snip tool, you can do rectanuglar, free form, window, full screen snips. For multiple screen capture, you can use a software call Snagit by TechSmith.

I use CloudApp on Windows 10 because in addition to doing screenshots, I sometimes I also want to record my screen
