Screen Capture on Samsung Charge

Member

My phone has saved four screen captures to the Gallery.  Great feature but I don't know how I did it. It seems to be some combination of button presses on the bottom of the phone, suddenly I hear the shutter sound and receive an advisment on the screen that a screen capture has been saved.  My daughter's I-phone does a screen capture, I checked with Verizon customer service/technical support.  The say the phone is not supposed to have that capability.  Does anybody know the key/button sequence to create a screen capture?

dmaxfeldt,

While you are  holding down the BACK button press the HOME button once and then in about one second you will hear a click that sounds like a camera taking a picture as the screen is captured (saved)..

I believe it's Home and back. The two middle buttons.

JerryF,

I have been a lurker for several months and become an active participant because of what I have read from you.  I think it is time for you to collect all the tips and tricks you have written and collected and draft them in a book.  You could have chapters on: How the Droid OS works for us users, How memory is managed, Droid Termonology, Battery management and care, "To root or not to root ... that is the question?", How the OS is updated/upgraded, How to manage the carriers, etc.

PJ,

Thanks for the nice comment.  I appreciate it.  I probably will be scaling down my efforts on this forum because I find the NEW format cumbersome, time consuming, and not much fun to use.

Writing a book is way to much work.  For 20 years I ran my own computer security company and wrote 15 or more books so I really know how much work there is in writing a book.  Anyhow that is either Verizon's or Samsung's job.  By the way there is a manual for the Charge phone on the Samsung web site.

 

As they used to say in Mission Impossible:  Your job Mr. PJ, should you decide to accept it, is to go find that  manual.

Best regards,

JerryF

Thankyou everybody for the help.  Works great.  The back button just slightly before the home button, holt a few second works.  Back button with a double tap on the home button works every time.  I appreciate the help.  Thank You

I also appreciate the tip.  But where does the phone save the screen shot?  Or does it?   I looked in the gallery, but it isn't there.

Never mind.  It showed up in the gallery after about 5 minutes.

It is in a folder called "screencapture" right off of the root directory of

your SD card.

Is there a way to turn off this feature?
