How do you turn on swipe screenshot on Samsung?

Answered by Edward Huber

To turn on swipe screenshot on Samsung devices, you can follow the steps below:

1. Start by opening the Settings app on your Samsung device. You can usually find the Settings app in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping the gear icon.

2. Once you have opened the Settings app, scroll down and tap on “Advanced features.” This option may be located under different headings depending on your device model and Android version, so you may need to explore a bit to find it.

3. In the Advanced features menu, look for the option called “Motions and gestures” and tap on it. This section allows you to enable various motion and gesture-based features on your device.

4. Within the Motions and gestures menu, you should see an option labeled “Palm swipe to capture.” This feature allows you to take a screenshot by swiping the side of your palm across the screen. Make sure this option is toggled on by sliding the switch to the right.

5. Once you have enabled Palm swipe to capture, you can test it out by opening any screen or app that you want to capture. Position your hand with the side of your palm touching the edge of the screen, and then swipe it horizontally across the display. Be sure to keep your hand in contact with the screen while swiping.

6. When the swipe is successful, you should see a brief animation and hear a shutter sound, indicating that the screenshot has been captured. You can then find the screenshot in your device’s gallery or in the notification shade, depending on your device’s settings.

It’s worth noting that not all Samsung devices may have the Palm swipe to capture feature, as it can vary depending on the model and Android version. If you can’t find this option in your device’s settings, you may need to use alternative methods to capture screenshots, such as using the hardware buttons combination (e.g., Power + Volume Down) or using the S Pen on devices that support it.

I hope this helps you enable swipe screenshot on your Samsung device. If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, feel free to ask.
