How to take a screenshot on the BlackBerry Motion

The BlackBerry Motion follows the same method of taking a screenshot as other Android-based BlackBerry devices. Very simply, this involves pressing the volume down key and the power key at the same time. It can be used on any screen to capture whatever is displayed as a separate image file. That image file can then be saved for later reference or shared to others.

BlackBerry Motion screenshot access

  1. Open the Photos app. It can be found in the Google folder on the home screen by default, or in the full apps list after you tap the grid button in the middle at the bottom of the screen.
  2. Scroll to the Screenshots subheading. Tap the number at the end of the thumbnails to view more than the last seven.
  3. Screenshots will also show up in the notification tray once you've taken them. Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the thumbnail to view the image, or tap the Share or Delete buttons.

From the Photos app, you can freely share, delete, edit, or view the file details. Your screenshot will show up as an option across many apps that let you send images, like Messenger or Instagram, though you can share to those apps from Photos as well.
