    Some manufacturers build special screenshot shortcuts into their pre-Android 4.0 devices. For example, on many Samsung Android devices, including the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II (pre-Ice Cream Sandwich versions), you can press the Home and Power buttons at the same time to take a screen snapshot – in practice, you’ll press and hold the Home button, then quickly press the Power button. On the Galaxy S, press and hold the Back button and the Power button, or try pressing the Back button and double-tapping the Home button.
    Different pre-Android 4.0 devices use a variety of different shortcuts – Please or Register to view links and you might find that your device has a built-in screenshot shortcut you don’t know about.

    Device-Specific Apps

    These manufacturer-specific hooks into the OS allow some apps to provide an easy-to-use, on-device way to take screen image. For example, Samsung Galaxy S, Galaxy Tab, and Galaxy S II (pre-ICS) users can use Please or Register to view links to capture a screenshot without rooting their phones.

    Root Apps

    The reason you have to jump through the hoops above instead of simply installing a screenshot app is because of Android’s security model.

There’s no Please or Register to view links to take snapshots of your screen.
    To give an app permission to view your screen, you’ll need to Please or Register to view links. After rooting your Android, you can install one of the many screen snapshot applications that require root from Google Play.

You can take a screenshot in a variety of ways, including shaking your device, tapping a notification, or setting a delay. Other apps have similar features.
