You can take screenshots with a palm swipe, button combo, with Bixby, and scrolling. Go below to see a breakdown of the steps.

Method 1: Using The Button Combo

This is the most familiar way to capture a screenshot on S9.

  1. Open the content on the screen you want to screenshot.
  2. Long Press and hold the volume down button and power button for about 2 seconds.
  3. You’ll see the screen shrink in(like a flicker), and editing options will appear briefly on the screen below.
  4. If you want to edit the screenshot right after it’s captured, you can tap the bottom options to draw, crop, or share it immediately.
  5. If you miss those buttons, the screenshot will also be saved in the notification shade, where you can expand and tap the options to edit, share, or delete it.
  6. If you dismiss notifications, the screenshot can also still be found in Gallery or any other app you may use to manage photos, like Google Photos.

Method 2: Using The Palm swipe screenshot

Samsung Galaxy S9 also offers a secondary method for getting to the same screenshot options, using the edge of your hand to swipe across and activate the process, that’s your motion sensor in action

  1. You first have to go to Settings, locate the advanced features, and make sure that “Palm swipe to capture” is turned on.
  2. Open the content on the screen you want to capture.
  3. Place the side of the palm of your hand on the edge of the screen(I’m fun of using my left palm and going from left to right ๐Ÿ˜‰), and in one motion, swipe it across the face of the phone.
  4. The screenshot will be captured in the same way as above, with the same editing and sharing options at the bottom of the screen.

Method 3: Using The Scrolling capture

Whether you take a screenshot with the button combination or palm swipe, you’ll sometimes notice an extra option in that bottom edit bar: “scroll capture.” This option lets you automatically scroll (in apps that allow vertically scroll) and stitch together several screenshots into one super-long screenshot.

  1. Open the content on the screen you want to capture. Whatever app you have open must be able to vertically scroll โ€” remember to start this process at the top of what you want to screenshot, since the scroll only goes downward.
  2. Use the button combo or palm swipe to initiate a screenshot.
  3. Tap scroll capture at the bottom of the screenshot edit menu.
  4. Continue to tap scroll capture until you’ve covered everything in the app that you wish to capture.
  5. The extra-tall scrolling screenshot will save in the same way as any other โ€” you can now edit, crop, and share it.

Method 4: Using Bixby Voice

The Samsung AI Bixby Voice can be useful for taking a screenshot if you’re unable to grab the phone to do the button combination or swipe gesture.

  1. Open the content on the screen you want to capture.
  2. Press and hold the Bixby Button, or if you’ve configured it, say, “Hey, Bixby.
  3. With the interface activated, say, “take a screenshot.”
  4. The screenshot will automatically be saved to the Gallery, where you can then view, edit and share it.
  5. Note that with the Bixby method, you miss out on the instant edit capabilities of the other methods. You can; however, string together commands to, for example, “take a screenshot and share it to Twitter” if you want to get elaborate.
