To take screenshots in the Galaxy S8, so just press the Power button and the volume down.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 + are two of the most powerful smartphones from 2017, and although they have many interesting features, there is one aspect that has generated opinions divided up to now: the absence of the physical Home button and its replacement by a navigation screen button that provides haptic feedback using a vibration motor.
Now, if the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge had to simultaneously press the Home button and the power key / lock to make screenshots, this combination of keys has changed in the Galaxy S8.

To take screenshots in the Galaxy S8 and S8 + you will have to press the power button (right side) and down (located on the left side) volume button simultaneously. To keep these buttons pressed for one second you’ll see a small flicker on the screen and a window that previews you the screenshot.
To have activated the function for screen captures, the terminal will give you three options in this regard:
- Make a long screen shot: clicking on this option the device will scroll and will take a second screenshot, after which will unite the two images a unique capture. This option is useful primarily for taking screenshots to websites, lists most long or anything else that takes more space than normal.
- Make a cut in the catch: by clicking on the cut button, will show you a preview with a few buttons on the screen to manually modify the clipping, or well for software automatically trim the top bar (showing the time, battery, etc.) the screenshot. This second option is very useful if you do not want to have any additional information on your screenshot.
