Welcome to this tutorial on how to screenshot on Android Motorola devices! In this article, we will explore the step-by-step process of capturing screenshots on your Motorola smartphone. Let’s get started!

Method 1: Using Hardware Buttons

If you own a Motorola device with a physical home button, follow these simple steps:

  1. Locate the power button and volume down button on your device. The power button is usually located on the right side or top of your device, while the volume down button is typically found on the right or left side.

  2. Open the screen that you want to capture as a screenshot.

  3. Simultaneously press and hold the power button and volume down button for a few seconds until you see a visual indication or hear a camera shutter sound.

  4. The screenshot will be saved in your device’s gallery or screenshots folder.

Method 2: Using Gestures

If you have a newer Motorola device with gesture-based navigation, follow these steps:

  1. Open the screen that you want to capture as a screenshot.

  2. Place three fingers (index, middle, and ring fingers) horizontally on the screen.

  3. Swipe down with all three fingers at once.

  4. You will see a visual indication or hear a camera shutter sound when the screenshot is captured successfully.

  5. Note:

    If you don’t see this option enabled by default, you may need to enable it in your device settings. Go to SettingsMoto ActionsScreenshot editor. Toggle the switch to enable the gesture.


If you are experiencing difficulties capturing screenshots on your Motorola device, try the following troubleshooting steps:

  • Ensure that your device’s software is up to date. Check for any available system updates and install them if necessary.

    Sometimes, system updates can fix minor issues.

  • If you are using a third-party screen recording or screenshot app, it may interfere with the default screenshot method. Try disabling or uninstalling such apps temporarily and check if the built-in screenshot functionality works.

  • If none of the above solutions work, restart your device and try again. Restarting can often resolve temporary glitches or conflicts.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to capture screenshots on your Motorola Android device using both hardware buttons and gestures.

Now you can easily save and share important information, memorable moments, or anything else you want to capture on your phone’s screen. Enjoy exploring this handy feature!
