    Hello I'm Greg. I have a HTC Droid Incredible 2 that's acting funny. In trying to close and App (home icon) it proceeds to take a screen shot pic. Lol kinda annoying at the time. I've already posted a question in the DI2 forum. Thanks

    Welcome to Droid Forums! Not exactly sure about your phone but it will help if you let us know what OS you are on now (Gingerbread, ICS) since it may be a built in feature.

    my OS is Android 2.3.4 which I assume is the Gingerbread. Doesn't do it all the time but in researching I can't find how to intentually do it. The only way to escape from it is to put it asleep then re awaken

    Honestly, I am not sure either. As far as I know GB does not have this feature built in, it was introduced in ICS. Unless there is an app you have downloaded with the feature, I am not quite sure what is causing it.

    Update : I found an article on the net about the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS screen shot feature. If you hold the power button and tap the home icon a screen shot image will be taken! So apparently my Otter Box case was pushing the power button enough to activate this feature. I knew it had to something simple lol. And something learned

    I'd be interested in seeing the article. I was under the impression it was a new feature for ICS (since it was such a big deal when the GNEX came out). I did not realize HTC was ahead of the curve.

    Hmm, interesting. I don't know what I was thinking of lol. Maybe it was just that Google had added it into their builds, instead of the manufacturers having to add it via their skins they put on each device.

    And I thought my droid charge was special. I was taking screen shots with that thing, right and left. Couldn't figure out for the life of me how I was doing it. Finally figured it out... pressing the two middle home-back keys at the same time, wah la screen shot.

    I guess everyone knew but me :)

    In my defense this is my first non-Moto device. I don't think they had that built in, but even if they did I was rooted and running ROMs anyway lol.

    Well, if its any consolation JSM, I thought the charge was the only GB phone that had screen shot. And then when the nexus had it, I thought it was a Samsung thing... but apparently not. Funny thing with the charge, it was never promoted as a feature which I thought it should have been.
