This might seem like a beginner type task, and it is, but don’t forget that we have new users coming over to Android and to the Samsung Galaxy S5 everyday, and they probably don’t know how to do simple things like take a screenshot or enable the mobile hotspot.

There are two ways to take screenshots on the Samsung Galaxy S5. The first way, and most common way, is to use the Home button and Power button together to capture the screen. Or you can use your palm and swipe across the screen – as shown in the video down below. Now you’ll see a notification in your notification shade that says that the screenshot was saved. From there you can either delete, edit or share the screenshot. Sharing it is pretty easy too. Just hit the share button and then choose your favorite place to share that screenshot.
