When you buy a new phone like the OnePlus 10 Pro, one of the first functions you might need to check out is the humble screenshot. Whether you're snapping a pic of the latest meme to share with your friends or taking a screenshot of an important document for future reference, the screenshot has become an essential tool today.
There are a number of apps on the market to help you take a neat screenshot. But the good news is that you don’t need to download an external app for this. Every device, even the OnePlus 10 Pro, has a built-in screenshot feature so you can capture your screen anytime, anywhere.
Here are some easy steps you can follow to take a screenshot on the OnePlus 10 Pro.
This is the most popular way to take a screenshot: Using the device’s built-in keys.
Step 1: Open the page or app screen you want to capture.
Step 2: Simultaneously press the Power button and Volume key to capture the screen.
Step 3: The image is auto-saved in your Gallery app.
If you can’t access the buttons for some reason or just prefer taking a screenshot with your fingers, here’s how you can do that on the OnePlus 10 Pro.
Step 1: Open the Settings menu.
Step 2: Click on System settings > Gestures and motions.
