In this article, we’ll go about how to take a screenshot on LG Android phones. After that, we’ll demonstrate some further screenshot functionality for you.
How to Take a Screenshot on an LG Phone
Taking a screenshot is simple on any LG smartphone. Here are the steps:
- With the screen you want to capture displayed, hold down the Power and Volume-down buttons at the same time.
- The screen will flash after a moment, and you’ll see an animation of the screen reducing with share and trash icons on the side.
- Tap the Share icon to open a quick share menu with a grid of apps you can share to, including your most common texting contacts, your social media apps, and Google Drive. Tap the Trash icon to delete the screenshot from your phone.
Note: If you don’t have social media apps, like Facebook, on your phone, you won’t be able to upload the screenshot directly to the site. You’ll need to open your web browser, navigate to the site, then upload the screenshot just as you would any other photograph.
Where Do I Find the Screenshots I’ve Taken?
You can find the screenshot in LG’s gallery app or any other app you’ve chosen to use to organize your photographs. They might be sorted into a “screenshots” folder or simply added to your photo roll, depending on the app’s settings. Check these options in your specific app.
Your screenshots will also be kept in case you have an automatic backup system in place. Regularly purge them from your backup files if you no longer require them.
How Do I Share My Screenshots?
You can share screenshots the same way you share other images because most apps treat them like regular photos. Post-processing programs will also perceive them in that way, so feel free to add a selfie filter to your screenshot if you like. Use a photo editing app to crop off any extraneous portions of the image when taking pictures if you don’t need or want the entire screen.
Some apps will disable screenshots for privacy, security, or legal reasons. If an app won’t take screenshots, check its user agreement for possible issues.
