Topic for Today:
FYI: for most Androids running older OS, (i.e. 4 + ); hold down power + volume down key at the same time, until you hear the camera snapshot sound and or you see the screen blink. Notification bar will say "Saving screenshot"……… 

Meanwhile, for newer iPhones, (i.e. 6+),  pressing home and power on/off buttons at the same time also will capture your screen and save it to your Photos Folder and will be inside your screenshots album.

For Windows Phone OS devices:If you have a Nokia Lumia ; (i.e. 920, 1020), Press and hold the Windows Volume (up/down); button, and the Power button at the same time to take a screenshot, By simply doing this,  Suddenly, you will see this flashing light, then the screenshot photo, will be automatically saved  to your screen shots album. (On top of your screen, it says: Saving to screen shots........).

Images of my Screenshots on a Nokia Lumia 1020:

To capture a screenshot from other Samsung devices having Android OS, Press your device's back button AND OR the return button and home button simultaneously. Android will create a new folder called (screen capture); inside the photos/gallery folder and save it there.
Some devices with Android newer operating systems are able to take a screenshot by holding down the Home and Power keys simultaneously,  for a quick second then release the buttons;  once you see or hear a snapshot and or blink of your screen. You will find all your screenshots in your screenshots folder inside your photos album or gallery album.
Note: For advance users only: P.S.  if rooting your android phone , is the last solution you may have, you may buy an app that can easy root your phone or best thing is, (only if you’re so eager to root your phone), anyhow, root it at your own risk, or go buy a new android phone/or a mobile device that can capture a screenshot, lol
To root is to jailbreak your own device, meaning to access the  secured settings of your device which is only accessible by the developer itself. (i.e Accessing unwanted applications which are and cannot be installed and deleted, by the user; can only be attained to; through rooting).

Enjoy saving screenshots!
