We all wish to be able to take screenshots of our Android devices screens to either share with friends over the computer or just publish our own customized screens to forums and various websites.

There are 2 methods of doing this. One being the default where you press a combination of keys and the other is a bit more fancy.

Method #1:

  1. Go to the place of which you want to take a screenshot of (it could be you homescreen, a settings menu, an app, etc).
  2. Now begin to hold the Home button and the Power button together for atleast a second or two and release them. It's important to press the two buttons simultaneously otherwise it won't work.
  3. You should see a screenshot effect of your screen (white border lines) aswell as a notification in your statusbar.

Method #2:

  1. Head over to the Settings of your Galaxy S4
  2. On the top, tap on where it says "My Device".
  3. Look for and go to "Motions and gestures".
  4. Now turn on "Palm motion" and go there.
  5. Make sure "Capture screen" is turned on.
  6. Now simply swipe your hand from the left side to the right side of your screen and you should hear and see the same results as in method #1.
And that is how you take a screenshot in the Galaxy S4 with both classic method and the fancier method.
