How to take a screenshot on the LG G6

Knowing how to capture a screenshot is something that all LG G6 owners should know how to do. While LG allows users to capture a screenshot using Android’s default method using the physical power and volume buttons, there is also a way to take one using the G6’s Capture+ software which can be easier to use for some.

How to take a screenshot on the LG G6

  1. Locate the screen which you wish to capture
  2. Press down on the Power button and the Volume down button at the same time
  3. Release the buttons after a couple of seconds when you see the pop-up animation

How to take a screenshot with LG’s Capture+

  1. Go to your LG G6’s Settings menu
  2. Navigate to the Display menu
  3. Select Home touch buttons under the Basic subheading
  4. Tap on Button combination
  5. Drag the Capture+ option onto your navigation bar
  6. Now locate the screen in which you wish to capture
  7. Select the Capture+ icon on your navigation bar
  8. You can now either mark up the screenshot, share it with someone, or just save the image by tapping on the check mark in the top left corner of the display

How to locate and share your screenshots

  1. Directly after taking a screenshot, there will be a notification letting you know that a screenshot was captured.
  2. From this notification, you can either view the image, share it, or even delete it
  3. The screenshot itself will be stored in whichever application is set as your default
  4. When viewing the image within the app, you can share the photo, edit it, view information about where it is located on the phone, when it was taken, and delete it.
