How do you turn on 3 finger screenshot on Samsung?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

To turn on the 3-finger screenshot feature on a Samsung phone, follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your Samsung phone. You can usually find it in the app drawer or by swiping down on the notification shade and tapping the gear icon.

2. Scroll down and tap on “Advanced features.” This option may vary depending on your Samsung phone model and software version, but it is usually located towards the bottom of the Settings menu.

3. Look for the “Motions and gestures” section and tap on it. Again, the exact wording or placement may differ based on your phone model.

4. Within the Motions and gestures settings, you should see an option called “Palm swipe to capture” or something similar. Tap on it to access the palm swipe settings.

5. In the palm swipe settings, ensure that the feature is turned on. If it’s already enabled, you can skip this step.

6. Now, you need to activate the 3-finger screenshot gesture. In the same palm swipe settings screen, you will see an option called “Swipe with the side of your hand.” Enable this option.

7. Congratulations! You have successfully turned on the 3-finger screenshot gesture on your Samsung phone. To capture a screenshot using this feature, simply swipe your three fingers horizontally across the screen from one side to the other. You should see a screenshot animation and hear a sound to indicate that the screenshot has been taken.

Note: The steps provided here are based on the general settings layout of Samsung phones. However, there may be slight variations depending on the specific model and software version of your device. If you are unable to locate the exact options mentioned, you can also try using the search function within the Settings app to find the gesture settings more easily.

I have personally used this feature on my Samsung phone, and it has been quite convenient for quickly capturing screenshots without needing to press any physical buttons. It’s especially useful when you want to capture something quickly or when your hands are occupied.
