How to capture a screenshot on Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3

You have two ways to capture a screenshot of what the screen for the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 or Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 is currently showing.

The first method, called Key Capture, is the easiest to do as you simply have to press the Side key and Volume Down key at the same time to capture the image.

The second method, called Swipe Capture, requires you to enable Palm swipe to capture. To enable this feature, you need to open the Settings app on your phone and then go to Advanced features > Motions and gestures.

To use Swipe Capture, you need to use the edge of your hand to swipe across the screen to the left or right.

After capturing a screenshot using either of the aforementioned methods on your Galaxy Z Flip 3 or Galaxy Z Fold 3, you may see the Screenshot Toolbar appear. If you don’t see this toolbar, you activate it by going to Advanced features > Screenshots and screen recorder > Screenshot toolbar in the Settings app on your phone.

With the Screenshot Toolbar, you can set the capture to include areas outside of the viewport of your Galaxy Z Flip 3 or Galaxy Z Fold 3 screen. For example, if you want to capture the entirety of a page that is too long to be viewed on the screen without being able to scroll down, then you need to tap the icon with the down-pointing arrow.

Using the same Screenshot Toolbar, you can also write over the screenshot, crop the screenshot, add tags and/or share the captured image with others.
