    Press and hold the Home button until Google Now on Tap appears.

    Tap the share button in the bottom menu.

    A screenshot will be taken and the share menu will appear.

    You'll be able to share the screenshot as you would any other image from your device.

    Part of the thanks needs to go to @Mustang02 since he reminded us of the Google On Tap screenshot functionality. When taking one this way it does not save to the phone Gallery, at least not that I have seen. If you want to save a screenshot to your Gallery then the traditional Power + Vol Down is the way to go. The Google On Tap method is quicker to share a screenshot though, since you never have to leave the screen you are on to share, all sharing options are right there on one screen and you don't have to navigate to your Gallery to bring up the sharing menu. It's always good to have choices & options. :cool:

    I forgot until you reminded me. And others may not be aware of the different ways to take and share screenshots.

    I use it all the time. But I'm on Nexus. Didn't know if the functionality was cross device. Good to know it is.

    I amend my question now that I have sleep toggle and snapshot via Google now to how do a disable all physical buttons from accidental touch but still use for hard resets only. Which is the only reason for physical buttons I c left as I can do volume from an app too btw I liked the the buttons on the back like lgg4 does and the physical circle fingerprint reader of iPhones VA Samsung and Lenovo oh well

    I think the question is something like ...... Is the turbo2 was made by Motorola under droid brand. Moto z force was made by Lenovo under the moto droid brand. So is Motozforce that's Lenovo the same people and or the same or different corporate owner structure. Does Lenovo own both the old and new brands or companies if anybody has the fact answers reply with answer and note source then we can put this question to rest .. :)
