How to take a scrolling screenshot on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge
One of the nicer small features that the Galaxy Note 5 brought upon us last year was scrolling screen capture, which enables users to capture a sequence of windows in a single screenshot file. Undoubtedly useful, the nifty interface goodie remained an exclusive for the venerable Note phablet. Luckily for all current and soon-to-be owners of the Galaxy S7 or the S7 edge, the functionality is part of their feature lists.
What's more, it has been revamped a bit and is now way more user-friendly than the one on the Note 5. Before, making use of this required you to flip out your S Pen and tap the corresponding option in the Air Command menu, then scroll the screen with the stylus in order to capture the desired area.
As neither the Galaxy S7 or the S7 edge come with S Pen styli, Samsung has went the extra mile and made the scrolling screenshot feature way more user-friendly. Well, here's how to do it:
First of all, take a screenshot like you'd normally would: by tapping the home key Home key (below the display) and the Power/Lock key (on the right) for a couple of seconds.
Once the screenshot is ready, you will notice a set of three buttons near the bottom of the screen.
Tap on the leftmost one, "Capture more". The screen will automatically swipe down and will be added to the screen grab.
Press it again, and the screen will further scroll down. Notice that you get a preview of the screenshot in the upper right corner.
