For the majority of BlackBerry 10 users you will more than likely think that this post is stating the obvious so forgive us on this occasion. However, for new users to Team BlackBerry, knowing how to take a screenshot is a big deal, as it's a feature most of us use at some point or another.
If you dive into BlackBerry World you'll find a selection of screen capture applications, but don't waste your hard earned cash there as the ability to perform a screen shot is baked into BlackBerry 10 and has been since day one.
And it couldn't be easier. All you need to do is follow these in depth instructions:
- Press the up and down volume keys at the same time
Okay, the in depth bit was my sense of humor, but as you can see it's a piece of cake to do. As you press the two hardware buttons (and this applies to all BlackBerry 10 devices) you will see a box pop up on your display telling you that the screen capture has been performed - a nice touch, instead of just a clicking sound like on some other operating systems.
When you need to access your screenshots just jump into your photo gallery and there they'll be - simple.
This one certainly isn't rocket science, but for you BlackBerry 10 newbies it's a must have. Once again, an example of BlackBerry 10 making life simple for its users. We like that.
