How to Screenshot on a Galaxy Note 2

Samsung’s Galaxy Note II is a popular phone and tablet, or “phablet,” that uses a pressure sensitive pen and to access apps and create emails and other documents. Unlike other Android devices, you can easily take a screenshot on the Galaxy Note II, and share the screenshot via email or text.

Taking a Screenshot Using Buttons
Power up your Galaxy Note II. Navigate to the screen on which you would like to take a screenshot.

Press the power button down.

Press the home button down simultaneously.

Hold the buttons for a few seconds, until the device makes a single shutter sound. The perimeter of the screen will also flash to indicate the screenshot has been taken.

Go to your Gallery application to see and share the screenshot you have just taken. [1]

Taking a Screenshot Using the S Pen
Power up your Galaxy Note II. Remove the S Pen from the bottom of the device.

Navigate to the page that you want to capture.

Click the side button on the S Pen with your thumb or index finger.

Touch the pen to the screen.

Wait a second until the shutter sound goes off and the border of the screen flashes. This will indicate that you have taken a screenshot. [2]

Access your screenshots in the Gallery application on your phablet.

Taking a Screenshot Using Your Hand
Turn on your Samsung Galaxy device.

Click the Menu button on your phone.

Choose the Settings option.

Select “Motion.” Then, select “Hand Motion.” This will change the settings indicating how you can capture information on your Galaxy Note II.

Check the box that says “Palm swipe to Capture.”

Navigate to the page you want to screenshot.

Swipe the right side of your hand from right to left or left to right across the screen. Once the palm swipe is enabled, you can use this method to capture screen images until you turn it off.

Access screenshots in our Gallery application.

The Galaxy Note II runs the Jelly Bean operating system that enables these screenshot options. In late 2013 or early 2014, Android plans to release the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Note II. [3] The ways in which you can screenshot may change with the update.
