So you just got a new smartphone, the Galaxy S21 (or S21+, or S21 Ultra), and want to know how to share something with someone. A great way to do that is via a screenshot on the Galaxy S21. Which is super simple to do, edit, and then share with someone. In virtually any app.
In just a few seconds, you can take a screenshot, edit it and send it to someone via Telegram, Twitter, WhatsApp or anywhere else. And we're going to show you how to take a screenshot on the Galaxy S21.
How To Take A Screenshot On Galaxy S21
It's pretty simple to take a screenshot on the Galaxy S21, but it is a tiny bit different from other Android smartphones. So here's how you do it.
Simply press the volume down and power button together. Press them for a short time, about a second.
Then let go, and you'll see the animation for a screenshot. Along with a toolbar for editing and sharing your screenshot.
That's literally it. You can crop, draw and more on your screenshot when you press the edit button on that toolbar. So you only share a part of your screen and not the entire thing.
The default settings on the Galaxy S21 will put you into the power menu if you press and hold the volume down and power buttons together. Which is why you need to only tap these together for a second. Otherwise, you'll be taken to the power menu for powering off, restart or emergency call. You can change that in the settings.
Below, you'll see a quick video on our TikTok showing you how to take a screenshot.
