    Hi,
    Can anyone please tell me how to take a screenshot on a Galaxy J5 by swiping my hand across the screen? I know you have to go to Motion and gestures but I am on Android 6.0 and I don´t see that option. Thanks in advance for your answers.:p

    Settings - advanced features - palm swipe??

    This is on a note 7, not sure if the setup is the exact same.

    How to Take Screenshots with Palm-Swipe Gesture:
    This feature has been included in almost all of the latest Samsung TouchWiz phones (i.e. Android phones from Samsung that are not more than 2 years old). In order to enable the feature and use it, we have compiled detailed steps below:

    Step 1 – You need to activate the gesture itself before you can actually use it. In order to do so, go into the Settings app and select the Motion menu.

    Step 2 – From the Motion menu, find out Hand Motions and then check the Palm Swipe to capturecheck-box.

    Step 3 – Close the settings app, head to the screen which you want to capture.

    Step 4 – Here is the fun part — now shape your hand like a knife (your thumb facing up) and swipe across the screen horizontally from either side, edge to edge. If you do it correctly, a swipe animation will trigger and it will save the screenshot.
