Android

Android 4.0 and later

If your Android phone is running Ice Cream Sandwich, or Android 4.0, or any later version of Android, screenshots are nearly as easy as the iPhone. Hold the “Volume Down” button, then click the Power/Sleep/Wake button. You’ll see a notification that the screenshot was saved, and a camera-like flash and sound.

Head to your “Gallery” app (which could be named “Photos” or something similar on certain phone brands). Inside, look for a “Screenshots folder,” where you’ll find your snaps. Select any photo and choose the Share option (sometimes revealed by tapping on the photo again), which then allows for emailing, Dropbox-ing, or any other means you’d like of sharing your screen.

Android 2.3 and earlier

You have two real options when it comes to snagging a screenshot on Android phones that aren’t up to the bleeding edge. There is a third option that involves rooting your Android phone and installing root-required screenshot apps. But the apps I once vouched for in this regard are no longer in the Market/Play Store, and rooting is quite a bit more difficult, and much more risky, than the SDK method that yields about the same results.

 

 

Windows Phone

In order to take screenshots in Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile, go to the screen or app that you want to capture in the screenshot. Then, press and hold the Power and Volume Up buttons at the same time.
