Save and share

Once you snapped the screenshot, you can create a shortcut to it in the notification panel. Tap on it, and you will be able to edit or share it.

If you are running Android 2.3 and below

The Android 2.3 and below versions phones do not have built-in screenshot functionality. However, some devices (many Samsung phones) have these features, but vary phone to phone.

If your phone doesn't have a built-in screenshot, you need to use a third-party application like No Root Screenshot It. Install this app on your phone and install its free companion app on your computer. This will enable screenshots.
