How to take a screenshot of your iPad or iPad Pro
1.Launch the app (or apps in split view/picture-in-picture) you want to screenshot.
2.Arrange the app (or apps) exactly the way you want them to appear in the screenshot.
3.Press and hold the Sleep/Wake (on/off) button on the top of your iPad.
4.Quickly click the Home button at the bottom of the screen. Release both buttons.
While you can certainly try and hit both buttons at the same time, holding the Sleep/Wake (on/off) button an instant before tapping the Home button will minimize the chances of accidentally activating Siri or, if you're trying to screenshot the lock screen, blowing through it with Touch ID. Just be quick about it, or you'll pull up the power-off screen.
When you successfully trigger a screen shot, you'll see a white flash and, if audio is on, hear the camera shutter sound. That confirms your screen has been captured and saved to your iPad.
How to take a screenshot on iPhone X
Because iPhone X doesn't have a Home button, you have to use the Side button to take a screenshot instead.
1.Open the app or screen you want to capture.
2.Set up everything exactly the way you want it for the shot.
3.Press and hold the Side button on the right side of iPhone X.
4.Click the Volume Up button at the exact same time. (This replaces the Home button step from previous iPhones.)
5.The screen will flash white and you'll hear the camera shutter sound (if your sound is enabled).
How to take a screenshot on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus (and earlier iPhones)
All iPhones from the original in 2007 through iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in 2017 all use exactly the same method to capture the screen.
1.Open the app you want to screenshot and go to the exact screen you want to capture.
2.Press and hold the Power button on the right side and click the Home button at the exact same time. (This helps ensure you don't activate Touch ID or Siri by accident while trying to take your screenshot.)
3.The screen will flash white and you'll hear the camera shutter sound (if your sound is enabled).
4.If you're on iOS 10 or earlier, the screenshot will be saved to your All Photosalbum (or Camera Roll if you're not using iCloud Photo Library). If you're using the iOS 11, this process will be slightly different.

Click on the window you would like to capture.
- Press Ctrl+ Print Screen (Print Scrn) by holding down the Ctrl key and then pressing the Print Screen key.
The Print Screen key is near the upper-right corner of your keyboard. (Depending on the type of keyboard you have, the exact key names on your keyboard may vary slightly.)

How to take a screenshot on an Android phone
Get the screen that you want to capture ready to go.
Hold down the "volume down" and "power" buttons at the same time. (That's the middle button and the bottom button, as seen on the back of the G3.) You'll see the screenshot effect on-screen.
Boom. Screenshot. The image will be saved in the "Screenshots" folder on your internal storage, and you can view this folder through the Gallery app.
Alternatively, you can share your shot immediately with another app by dragging the notification shade down, finding your screenshot and using the "share" button.
