Screenshot of Galaxy Z Fold 4

The easiest way to take a screenshot on the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is to press the volume down button and the power button at the same time. This is the most popular way to take screenshot on almost all Android phones, and it also works on Galaxy Z Fold 4. However, there are several other ways to take screenshot on Galaxy Z Fold 4, so let’s review them together.

Use flex mode

One of the best things about the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is that the hinge is sturdy enough to allow you to open the home screen halfway and rest it on a flat surface. Doing so will turn on flex mode automatically which is a very smart way to use screen property to offer a new experience. We suggest you check out our website Roam flex mode To learn more about this particular feature. For now, let’s take a look at how to take a screenshot using flex mode:

  • With Flex mode enabled, head to the page you want to take a screenshot of.
  • Now, fold the screen halfway and wait for the flexible mode to start.
  • The bottom of the screen will now show you a dashboard with a bunch of icons.
  • One of them is the screenshot icon. Just select it to take a screenshot.

Remember that the screenshot option in flex mode only captures the top of the screen with the main content. The bottom with the control panel and touchpad will not be part of your screenshot. You will have to use the Volume Up and the Power button to take a screenshot of the entire screen.

Using Bixby or Google Assistant

Yes, Bixby is still a great thing on Samsung phones that you can use to perform various tasks. In this case, you can use Bixby to take a screenshot for you. Heres how to do it:

  • Go to the page you want to capture and alert Bixby Assistant.
  • You can wake up Bixby either by pressing and holding the power button or by saying “Hey, Bixby!”.
  • Once Bixby is activated, simply say, “Take a screenshot,” to quickly take a screenshot of your screen.
