how do you do the screenshots i downloaded a couple screen shot apps but it says i have to get root privileges to use the apps and i have no idea??
If you don't want to root your phone to take screencaps, How to take screenshots of your Android based phone from Windows – Simple Help <-- something like that will do it. That guide is a little old, but same basic steps even though things look a little different now. Also, same basic steps should work on other operating systems as well.
