Taking a screenshot can be quite helpful in many ways. If you need to share something on your screen with someone but they aren’t next to you, sending them a screenshot is a handy way to do so.

If you own a Galaxy Note 7 and are wondering how to take a screenshot, look no further! Taking a screenshot on the Galaxy Note 7 is very easy, and there are three methods to do so:

Method 1 — the easiest way:

  1. Pull up the page on your Galaxy Note 7 that you want to screenshot.
  2. Press and hold the power button and the home button for two seconds.
  3. A brief flash will appear, along with a notification, at which point you can release both buttons.

Method 2 — the palm swipe screenshot:

  1. Pull up the page on your Galaxy Note 7 that you want to screenshot.
  2. Place your hand along either edge of the Galaxy Note 7 and swipe in from the edge.
  3. A brief flash will appear, along with a notification.
  4. If this method did not work, go to Settings, then Advanced features, and make sure Palm swipe to capture is turned on. 

Method 3 — the Screen Write screenshot:

  1. Make sure the content you want to take a screenshot of is open.
  2. Take out your S Pen and tap on Screen Write once the Air Command menu has launched.
  3. A brief flash will appear.
  4. You can now draw on the screenshot with your S Pen with different colors, an eraser, and more.
