Many devices such as laptops, desktops, and smartphones are able to capture pictures of their screen. Since it’s a common feature, you may be wondering how to take a screenshot with a Samsung Galaxy On5.
The camera on your Samsung Galaxy On5 is great when something is happening around you, and you want to capture the moment.
Unfortunately the camera is not able to take a picture of something on your screen, which is inconvenient if you have a picture of a text message conversation, or a part of a Web page that you want to share with someone else.
But you are able to take a screenshot on your Galaxy On5 by pressing a specific combination of buttons. That screenshot image can then be shared in the same manner that you would share a picture that you took with the Camera app.
How to Screenshot on a Galaxy On5
- Display the image on your screen that you want to capture.
- Locate the Home button under the screen and the Power button on the side.
- Press the Home button and the Power button at the same time.
Our guide continues below with additional information and pictures of these steps. We will also show you how to find the screenshot that you just took of your Galaxy On5.
