How to take a screenshot with your HTC One M8

HTC One M8

If you want to know how to take a screenshot with your HTC One M8 , you just have to follow a few simple steps. There are two ways to take a screenshot with this smartphone, but first, you should select an image that you want to appear in your photo gallery. It doesn't matter if it's from the Internet or from a game. When you have it selected you can:

1. Press for several seconds, and at the same time, the power button and volume down . The power button is the same as the off button. It's in the upper-right edge of the terminal. The second that you have to press is located on the right. It is a long and elongated button. You have to go to the bottom and press it at the same time as the other. This shape is a bit awkward, as you should have the phone securely attached so it doesn't fall off.

The image will be saved in the photo gallery , in a folder called ' Screenshots ' or ' Screenshots ', depending on the configuration you have set for it. The gallery comes pre-installed in the main menu. It is a square and yellow box where all the photographs you have taken with the phone are stored.

Once you have made the capture, you can always share it with your friends . If you click once on it, on the second button that appears at the bottom, you get the option to share. It is just the one next to the star and is shaped like clock hands . Here you will see all the applications with which you can send the photo. You just have to choose one, for example WhatsApp , and select the name of the person you want to send it to. Here you will be in the main menu of the app.

Quick Settings HTC One M8

2. From the main menu bar . If you are one of those who regularly take screenshots , I would recommend that you install this option. The first thing you have to do is unlock your phone. When you have it done, you have to slide your finger from the top of the screen to the bottom. You will get a black face, like a curtain.

On that same screen, you will find an icon at the top right, in the corner. It has a square shape and a symbol of a face on the left side. When you press it, you get to the main menu. First, your username and up to a total of 12 shortcuts appear . These can be changed. To do this, we must click on the button below the camera. It is shaped like a notebook with a pencil.

Now, all we have to do is decide which button we are going to replace with the 'Screenshot' button . When we have decided, we must first get rid of any of those that are already there. For example, that of ' Do not disturb '. We drag that element with our finger to where it says ' Hidden elements '. When we have it there, we release it. Now, you have to repeat the operation in reverse. We take the button that says ' Screenshot ' and we drag it to the upper icons.

Thus, we will have the button to take screenshots pre-established in ' Quick Settings' . In this way, every time we want to make one, we only have to lower the black screen that we talked about at the beginning. Next, click on the main menu icon and you will see how a quick capture button appears. If we press it, we will make the screenshot.
