Is there a way to turn off this feature - my phone seems to be on auto pilot....

Squeekstr,

In the APPs that came with your phone you have one called My Files.  Go to it and touch it.  Then go down the list of folders  to Screen Capture.  Touch it  and you will see any and all screen captures you made.  That's where they hide 'em.  (:  (:

Is there a way to capture the screen I'm actually on?  Unless I'm on the home screen, as soon as I hit the 'back' button, it goes to my previous screen before the screenshot is captured.  For ex, how can I capture a shot of a text message without the phone going back a screen prior to the capture?  Thank you!

jp3296,

 

I first saw this on another forum but had to modify it some so it would work every time.  If the problem is that when you take a screen shot the screen goes BACK to the previous screen BEFORE the screen shot is captured and therefore you get a screen shot of the wrong screen, this will fix that problem.

When you have the screen you want to capture PULL DOWN THE NOTIFICATION SCREEN.  Then you press the Back button (keep holding it down) and QUICKLY press and release the Home button while still holding down the Back button.  Your phone will remove the notification screen and capture the screen you wanted to capture but remember to keep holding down the Back button until you hear the clicking sound of the screen capture itself.

This is the best and easiest solution...problem finally solved!

NO, this is built into the phone by Samsung.  It is NOT software.

there are also apps that can take a screen shot based upon a timer (e.g. 5 seconds, 10 seconds, 60 seconds, etc.)

I can just press both Home and back at the same time and it works for me.
