Samsung Galaxy Tab 2: How to Take a Screenshot

Taking a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 really couldn’t be easier. Most devices require you to hit a button combination of some kind, but on the new Galaxy Tab 2, they’ve put this feature right into the main button menu.

This process should work for both the 7 inch model (version 7.0) and the ten inch model (version 10.1) of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.

If you look at the bottom left in your main buttons, you’ll see an odd looking square button on the right. That’s the screenshot button.

When you take a screenshot, after a moment it will even bring up a basic editor where you can draw on the screenshot, or write a note, etc. When you’re done, just press the check mark at the top of the page.

    Please give us back our screenshot! The buttons to press for a screenshot are so difficult now that I always get a screeshot with the volume strip on it. Screenshot was my favourite.
