It’s fairly simple to take a screenshot on the OnePlus 9 or the OnePlus 9 Pro. But for those that might be new to the OnePlus family of smartphones, or even Android in general might need some help with how to take a screenshot.
OnePlus 9 has two ways that you can take a screenshot on its device. And there is also support for scrolling screenshots.
How To Take A Screenshot On OnePlus 9 Series
Go to the screen that you want to take a screenshot of.
Now tap and hold the Power and Volume Down button, until you see the screenshot animation happen. It’ll take a couple of seconds.
After that, you’ll see that the screenshot was taken and appears in the lower-right hand corner. If you tap on it, you can edit it, save it and then share it from right there. Allowing you to crop it to a specific part of the screen.
If you are on a screen that has a scroll bar (i.e. not the home screen or the app drawer), you will see a black button below the screenshot that says “Expanded Screenshot” tap that to start a scrolling screenshot.
From there you can tap anywhere to stop the scrolling screenshot, or wait til it finishes capturing the entire screen. And you’ll then be taken to the edit screen.
How to use the three-finger gesture
Like some other smartphones, OnePlus does have another way to take a screenshot, since the Power + Volume Down button can be difficult to do at times. So you can use the three-finger gesture.
To enable this, go to settings, then tap on Buttons & Gestures.
Now tap on Quick Gestures.
The top option will show the three-finger screenshot. Tap on the toggle to turn it on.
Now you can swipe three fingers down on the screen to take a screenshot. This can be much easier than pressing power and volume down.
And that’s it. That’s two ways you can use to take a screenshot on the OnePlus 9 series (that includes the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro).
