|How to take a screenshot on the HTC One||15/09/2014|
|Want to show off your high game score? It's easy to take a picture of the screen and share it on the HTC One.|
Whether you need a screen shot to show an impressive scene to friends, remember an important moment or capture some info that you'll need later on, there are two ways to go about taking a screen shot on your hot HTC One: the 'classic Android' method and the 'HTC One' method. Read on for a step-by-step guide.
The classic Android method
The most common way of taking screen shots on a HTC One (and any other Android device, for that matter) involves a combination of the Power and Volume Down buttons. Hold down the two of them at once and don't release them until you hear a shutter sound. You'll know your shot has been successful because a thumbnail will appear on the screen for a brief moment and a notification will show on your Notification Shade. You can view your shot by tapping this notification. You'll also find it stored in the Screenshot album, which is located inside your Gallery app.
The HTC One method
A second way of taking a screen shot applies more specifically to the HTC One and directly related devices, like the HTC One X. This time, you'll need the Power button again and you'll also need to find the capacitive Home button. Hold down the Power button for a half-second or so and then tap the Home button. Take care not to keep your finger on them for too long, otherwise your HTC One will ask if you want it switched off. You'll know your shot has worked when you hear the shutter sound and a message appears at the bottom of your screen. This method won't cause a notification to appear - to see your shot, you'll have to go straight to the Screenshot album in the Gallery app.
