Using the volume and power buttons

HTC One M9 screenshot

This is the simplest way to take a screenshot on your HTC One M9 is to use the standard button shortcut; like most Android phones, the screenshot function on the M9 is mapped to the volume down and power keys, so to take a screenshot you just need to press both at the same time.

Here's a rundown of the process in full:

  1. Get the screen or app you want to capture ready to go.
  2. Press (and hold) the volume down key and power key at the same time. These are the bottom two buttons found on the right edge of the phone.
  3. You'll now be able to see the screenshot in the Gallery app, or in HTC's built-in File Manager app.
  4. If you need to find the screenshots from a command line or through the Android File Transfer tool, they'll be in /pictures/screenshots.
