LG G5 screenshot

LG G5 screenshot — Method 1

The easiest way to take a screenshot on the LG G5 is the tried and true button combination — pressing the power and volume down keys at the same time. The LG G5 has its power key on the back, so successfully pulling this off can be tricker than on other Android phones with buttons on the side. In any case, with a bit of practice it's easy enough.

Everyone loves a numbered list, so here's a step-by-step rundown:

  1. Get the screen you want to capture ready — including clearing away any embarrassing (or incriminating) notifications or floating apps.
  2. Press the volume down and power keys at exactly the same time. (If you press one too late after the other, it won't work.)
  3. That's it. The screenshot will be saved to the "Screenshots" folder in your gallery for easy retrieval.
  4. If you want to immediately share it, find the screenshot notification in your notification tray, then hit the "Share" button.

... And you're done!
