A screenshot on Galaxy Note 8; how to take it?

Let us first have a look at the way that requires you to adopt a key combination method to take a screenshot.

Via Key Combinations

  • Firstly, open the desired content for which you want to take a screenshot.
  • Press both the volume down button and power button at the same time for around 2 seconds.
  • That’s it. The screen will flash for around a second and display the screenshot very clearly on the screen.
  • You can either choose to share the screenshot immediately or later as it will stay in the notifications window.

Via Palm Swipe

If you are a newbie, you are at the right place to know about how to use the Palm Swipe feature to capture a screenshot on Galaxy Note 8.

  • First of all, open the content for which you want to take a screenshot.
  • Now, place your hands either on the left side or right side of the Note 8 screen vertically.
  • With your hand still on the screen, swipe from one edge to the other.
  • If this way is not working for you, go to Settings > Advanced Features and see if you have enabled, “Palm Swipe to Capture”.
  • That’s it. The screen will flash and show the captured screenshot in this method as well.

Via S Pen and Screen Write

You can also capture screenshot on Galaxy Note 8 using the S Pen and Screen Write option.

  • After opening any desired content to capture the screenshot, take the S Pen to open Air Command, now tap on Screen Write.
  • The screen will flash for around a second and capture a single screenshot.
  • However, you will be redirected to the editing pane immediately to make changes on the captured screenshot. You will be able to make normal editing updates such as erasing, writing etc. After editing everything, you can tap Crop, Share or Save to finish your work.

Via Bixby Assistant

You can also capture a screenshot if you have enabled Bixby Assitant on your Note 8 device.
