How to get Galaxy Tab screen shot with shortcut key.

Posted on Feb 2 2011 - 1:55pm by Hansoo

Here a nifty tip getting screen shot of your Galaxy Tab. To get a screen shot from android phone it is always hassle. You have to install development tools or root. (Some applications are out there though.)

Galaxy Tab provides you with a very easy way to take screen shots as a key combination.

Press and hold ‘Back’ button and then press ‘Power’ button.

Then after camera shatter sound, the screen shot is saved at ‘ScreenCapture’ folder of your internal memory. You can get there by my “My file” preinstalled in Galaxy Tab

Note : We have tested some Galaxy S variants, but no dice. If you find one working this tip on Galaxy S phone, please share with us.
