Another way to make a screen on the A51 with the edge of the palm of your hand

screenshot, samsung

I already mentioned you can take a screenshot on a51 with the edge of your palm right away when you pull it out of the box and make the initial settings.

To do this, the edge of the palm must be drawn in such a way that it touches the screen slightly from the beginning to the end and must be carried out quickly.

When I first did it the first three times, it didn’t work out for me, but now everything is going with a bang. One piece of advice for your studies.

Choose a place on the screen so that the screen cannot move to the left, then learn faster. Witness that the snapshot display will blink.

I will not describe how to take a screenshot through Bixby now; initially it will need to be taught Russian.

Yes, I almost forgot. in a51 it is allowed to take a long screenshot, no matter how long.

Just select the page with scrolling and as soon as you make the buttons from the bottom immediately press the second button from the left (with an arrow pointing down).

For this I will write a separate entry, and so most of them will not read the first method until this point, unless someone wants to know where to find the skins.

The first way to take a screenshot on the A51 2020

I recently told you how to record a screen on the A51, now I will describe how to take a screenshot. First, find the location you want to capture. Now quickly press and release the “Volume Down” and “Power” buttons at the same time.

This will save it and, if you want to view or share it, you will quickly find it in the gallery. At the same time, if earlier it was necessary to hold the buttons a little bit, now on the Samsung a51 you need to instantly press and release.

Otherwise, shutdown, restart and emergency call will start. This is just one of the possible options.

There are at least two more built-in palm and through bixby. The latter is available by voice.

Also, earlier, when the power button was pressed for a long time in the phone, as a rule, a shutdown or reboot menu appeared.

Bixby will now launch immediately. In general, he is a good gizmo, only initially you need to tinker with him.

Although they say that this is an updated version, there are many differences, especially the appearance of another camera, and the manufacturer has eliminated many problems, which infuriated many in fifty.

However, I moved away from the main topic of Samsung a51 (probably because I just bought it now and pulled it out of the box for at least an hour).

Where on Samsung a51 are the screenshots taken

You can certainly find them in the gallery. This is if you share or just watch, but if you want to transfer, for example, to a computer, then the gallery will not work.

Then you need to open the folder with the internal memory, then follow the path DCIM Screenshots.

It is there that you will find screenshots, while the pictures will not be there, they are in another folder. That’s, in fact, all that I wanted to share.

And if you take a screenshot with any of the options I described, it doesn’t matter. Let me know in the comments and we will definitely solve this problem. Success.

Using the keys

BUT! If you fail, then you should not hold these two keys, you just need to press them at the same time and immediately release them. it’s checked, it works.

How do you know that the snapshot has been taken? It’s simple. First, you will hear a corresponding beep. If the sound is turned off, the corresponding icon in the status bar will tell you about the creation of a screenshot.

If this is not enough, call the shutter and you will see a system message about the created print screen.

You can view screenshots in the section of the same name in the “Gallery”.

Ok, we figured out with Samsung smartphones without a mechanical Home key, but what about those devices that have this key? Yes, exactly the same!

In this case, the user has a choice. he can press other keys. So, in the case of the mechanical Home key, you can also press the Power and Home buttons at the same time.

Which of these methods is more convenient? But this is up to you to decide. In our opinion, both options are convenient in their own way.

Using third-party applications

Of course, you can use third-party applications if necessary.

For example, we brought a button to the display to create screenshots and use it.

The application is shown as an example, you can use another one according to your taste.

    When to take a screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S20

    The phone manufacturer does not limit the owner with the options for creating a screen. You can take a screenshot at absolutely any time: while watching a movie, playing a game or chatting in a messenger. The main condition for taking a picture is that the smartphone must be turned on and unlocked.

    Delete or share a screenshot

    The moment the user opens a frame through the “Gallery” or “File Manager”, the full functionality of interaction with the image appears in front of him. For example, a phone owner can delete one or several screenshots at once in a couple of clicks:

    • Click the “Delete” button.

    Another way is to open the image itself through the “Gallery” and select the “Delete” option from the available options. After confirming the operation, the screenshot will be deleted from the phone memory.

    • If the phone is not endowed with a mechanical component “Home”, you will have to use a combination of buttons “Volume down” and “Power on”.
    • Successful capture of the picture will be accompanied by a visual and audio signal from the gadget.
    • For outdated models, you need to simultaneously hold down the “Home” and “Back” buttons.

    With a gesture

    Another way to take screenshots on Samsung smartphones is with the palm of your hand. Before using it, you must activate it (if, of course, it is present in the firmware of your smartphone).

    Next, we activate one more switch and you can start using this function.

    Now, to take a screenshot, just slide the edge of your palm across the screen (touching the screen). The disadvantage of this method is that it does not work while the on-screen keyboard is displayed.

    This method also requires the use of two hands, since you will need to hold the smartphone with one and swipe the other across the screen.

    If no way works

    If none of the options work, try just holding the buttons for longer. To get a screenshot, you need to hold down the keys at the same time, it will be difficult for an inexperienced user to do this the first time.

    If the screen does not work if all the conditions are met, then it is possible:

    • The phone is actually from a different manufacturer. There are often fakes of well-known brands on the market that do not support most of the functions of the original devices.
    • The smartphone has custom firmware installed. Counterfeit operating systems often conflict with proprietary hardware. You can fix the situation by rolling back the OS to the factory one. If you can’t do it yourself, you need to contact the service center.


    The manufacturer has added a new convenient feature to the Samsung A7. Now you can take a screenshot on the A7 2018 with a simple gesture. Before creating a screen, you need to activate it:

    • Visit “Settings”.

    • Exit the settings and go to the content, the photo of which you want to get.
    • Place your palm with the side to the screen with your thumb towards you, slide it horizontally across the screen from either side from one edge to the other. On a successful attempt, a distinctive sound and swipe animation will appear, which will save the photo.

    Where to find screenshots

    By default, Android saves screenshots in the Pictures / Screenshots or Pictures / ScreenCapture folders located in the Gallery or My Files. When inserting a memory card, the storage address may change, for example, to DCIM / Pictures. There are many options, so the easiest way is:

    • connect a smartphone to a stationary computer or laptop;
