    I've managed to save a screen shot to pictures but I've no idea how I did it.

    How is it done???

    Depends on the device you have. Frequently it's an option if you long-hold the power button, or possibly press it simultaneously with volume up or volume down, or possibly while tapping the Menu button.

    I'd recommend just doing a search for the device you have and "screenshot".

    ^Covered all the bases. Samsung phones also have a "palm swipe to capture feature".

    With most phones I have had the last few years, screenshots are captured by pressing the Volume Down button + Power button at the exact same time. If one is pressed before the other, then you either turn the volume down or see the Power Off option. If you get them exactly together you normally get a screenshot....on most phones I am familiar with.

    Samsung is power button & home button. Same still though. Both at the same time, perfectly.
