Android devices from various manufacturers may have slightly different methods for taking scrolling screenshots. Here’s a general guide on how to do it:
Method 1: Using Built-in Features (On Some Android Devices)
Open the screen or content you want to capture.
Press and hold the “Volume Down” and “Power” buttons simultaneously for a few seconds. This works on some Android devices, like Google Pixel phones and some Samsung phones.
After holding the buttons, a screenshot menu or toolbar should appear at the bottom or top of the screen.
Look for an option like “Scroll” or “Capture more” and tap it. Your device will automatically scroll down the content while capturing screenshots.
Continue to tap the scroll button until you’ve captured all the content you want.
Once you’re done, you can review and edit the scrolling screenshot in your device’s gallery or screenshot folder.
Method 2: Using Third-Party Apps (Universal Method)
If your device doesn’t have built-in scrolling screenshot functionality, you can use third-party apps like “Stitch & Share” or “LongShot” from the Google Play Store. Here’s how:
Download and install a scrolling screenshot app from the Google Play Store.
Open the app and follow the on-screen instructions to enable it.
Capture a standard screenshot of the portion of the content visible on your screen.
The app will prompt you to scroll down or capture more. Follow the prompts, and it will automatically stitch the screenshots together.
Review and edit the resulting scrolling screenshot if needed.
How to Capture a Scrolling Screenshot on iPhone (iOS 14 and later):
On iPhones running iOS 14 and later, you can capture a scrolling screenshot using the built-in screenshot feature. Here’s how:
Open the content you want to capture (e.g., a webpage, chat, or long document).
Take a regular screenshot by pressing the “Volume Up” and “Side” (or “Sleep/Wake”) buttons simultaneously. You’ll see a thumbnail preview of the screenshot in the lower-left corner of the screen.
Tap the screenshot thumbnail preview to open the screenshot editing interface.
At the top of the screen, you’ll see options like “Full Page” and “Screen.” Tap “Full Page.”
Your iPhone will automatically capture a scrolling screenshot of the entire content, stitching together multiple images.
You can annotate or crop the screenshot as needed and then tap “Done.”
Choose to save the screenshot to Photos or delete it if it’s not satisfactory.
Now you have a scrolling screenshot saved in your Photos app.
Please note that the specific steps for taking scrolling screenshots may vary slightly depending on your device’s manufacturer, Android version, or iPhone model, so it’s a good idea to consult your device’s user manual or online documentation for precise instructions.
