In this guide we’ll show you how to take a screenshot on the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. If you want to share or capture something on your screen, like a conversation, you do it by taking a screenshot. This is a basic feature available on all phones but each company does it a little different.
This works the same on all Motorola smartphones. Whether you call it a screenshot, screen grab, or you just want to save a snippet of an email, here’s how.
How to Take a Screenshot on the Moto G5
- Press and Hold the Volume Down and Power button at the same time, then let go
- You will see and hear the screenshot capture
- Now use the notification pulldown bar to view, share, or edit the image
Quickly push and hold down both buttons at the same time, hold for a second or two, then let go. You will see and hear the screenshot capture. That’s it. The phone will save what’s on the screen and you can instantly access it from the gallery. Depending on your settings, you can edit the photo or share it right from the notification bar.
This is a great way to capture a funny photo you see on your phone, save an address or sentence from an email, or save and send someone something. Basically, you can save any and everything you see on your screen as an image to use later, any way you want.
