How to Take a Screenshot on Samsung Galaxy Note 10


Samsung has recently launched its Note series of smartphones worldwide, the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+. In India, both phones are available for purchase through online portals and offline retail outlets from a starting price of Rs.69,999 and Rs.79,999 for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ respectively.

Now, capturing a screenshot on a smartphone is one of its basic functions. However, taking a screenshot on the Galaxy Note 10 is a bit complex compared to other Android smartphones. There are multiple ways to take a screenshot on the Note 10. Also, you can edit and highlight the screenshot on-the-go, before saving it and sending it to someone.

Why is taking screenshots different in Note 10?

On most of the Android devices, taking a screenshot is as easy as holding the Volume down + Power Key simultaneously. This year, Samsung went with a different approach with the design of the Note lineup. They removed the Bixby key (first introduced on the Samsung Galaxy S8 back in 2017) and moved the side buttons on the left side of the device. With the Note 10 and 10+, Samsung offers the user to remap the power key for different functions. But by default, holding the power button will launch Bixby instead of the Power off menu. So, to access the Power off menu you need to hold down Power + Volume Down Key, which is the same combination for taking a screenshot on most of the Android-powered devices.

If you have recently switched to the Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+, here’s how to capture a screenshot on it:

How to take a screenshot on Note 10?

  • Using a key combination
  • Using a gesture
  • Using Bixby Voice
  • Using the S-Pen

How to screenshot using a key combination

  1. Open the subject you wish to screenshot.
  2. Press both the Power + Volume Down key for a second. Don’t long-press as it will bring up the Power off menu.
  3. The screen will flash, and the screenshot will shortly appear on the screen.
  4. You can instantly share it via the share button located in the bottom bar, but it also gets saved to Gallery for sharing later.

How to screenshot using a gesture

  1. Open the subject you wish to screenshot.
  2. Place your hand vertically on the left edge of the Note 10 screen, and swipe to the right with your hand touching the screen.
  3. You’ll see the screen flash, and the screenshot will appear on the screen.
  4. The bottom bar will let you share the screenshot instantly, but it also gets saved to Gallery for sharing later.
  • If this doesn’t work, go to Settings > Advanced Features > Motions and Gestures> and enable “Palm swipe to capture”.

How to screenshot using Bixby Voice

  1. As mentioned before, open the subject you want to screenshot.
  2. If you haven’t remapped the power button, long-pressing it will activate Bixby Voice by default. You can also try saying “Hey Bixby” if you’ve configured it.
  3. When the Bixby logo appears, say “take a screenshot.”
  4. The screenshot will be saved to the Gallery, where you can view, edit and then share it. Note that if you are using Bixby to take a screenshot, the bottom bar won’t show up so instant sharing isn’t possible.
  5. You can also use string commands such as “take a screenshot and share it on Instagram.”

How to screenshot using S-Pen

  1. Open the subject you wish to screenshot.
  2. Pop-out the S-Pen from the bottom of the device to launch the Air Action menu. Then select Screen Write.
  3. The screen will flash and capture a screenshot.
  4. This will take you to the editing menu, where you can write or highlight anywhere on the screen using the S-Pen.
  5. You can also select different pen types, as well as adjust the size and color of the markups.
  6. Finally, tap on Share or Save to share the screenshot or save it to the gallery.
  7. You can also use the Smart Select feature available in the Air Action menu. This will allow you to crop a portion of your screen and capture it.

No matter how you use the screenshot tools found on the Note 10, it’s clearly one of the most all-around, feature-packed devices, giving the flexibility to the user that none has ever provided in the premium smartphone market.
