Samsung Galaxy S10, S10e and S10 Plus: how to take a screenshot
The Samsung Galaxy S10 series are some of the hottest Android phones around, but how do you take a screenshot to show all that goodness to the world?

There are 2 easy ways to capture a screenshot on the Galaxy S10 and there is one more thing you need to know about the screenshots that will make your life much easier.

So let's get started with the first and...

The easiest way

Simultaneously press and hold the power button (on the right) and the volume down key (on the left)

The cool way

It's called Palm Swipe and you simply use the side of your palm to gently swipe on the screen from one edge of the screen to the other. You can swipe in either direction with either arm and you will get the screenshot you need

If this does not work, check if Palm Swipe is turned on

Simply open Settings and type in 'Palm Swipe'

It might have been disabled

But normally, it is enabled by default

Important tip: disable the pop-up you get with every screenshot!

Open Settings and type in 'Smart Capture'

Tap on the toggle to disable it

It gets especially annoying if you have multiple screenshots to capture

And that's it!

You have now mastered the art of screenshots on the Galaxy S10, congratulations!

There's way to screenshot using bixby too. The Problem is.. there's "screenshot" text get in way while taking it.

Why would I disable 'Smart Capture' though? It's so much better to be able to crop, draw, share or extend the screenshot right after taking it.
