Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7-inch

Taking a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 really couldn’t be easier. Most devices require you to hit a button combination of some kind, but on the new Galaxy Tab 2, they’ve put this feature right into the main button menu.

This process should work for both the 7 inch model (version 7.0) and the ten inch model (version 10.1) of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.

If you look at the bottom left in your main buttons, you’ll see an odd looking square button on the right. That’s the screenshot button.

All screenshots will be saved to your Gallery under a Screenshots folder.

Update: After the ICS update for this device, the process for taking a screenshot has changed. The button has been removed. Now you will have to hold Power and Volume Down at the same time. A copy of the screenshot is automatically saved to the clipboard.
