I have a Samsung Galaxy 2 10.1 tablet. After the latest update to android 4.2.2 the screen shots button is gone from the task bar. How do I take a screen shot now?

1. If your cell phone has Android 4.0 or later press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time for a screenshot.

2. If your device is rooted you can install an app like Screenshot:

3. For a non rooted device you can buy this app:

4. You can also use Android SDK:

It seems to be device/manufacturer dependent because on my HTC One, screenshot is achieved by holding power button down and pressing home button.

On the HTC One there is also a dedicated screenshot button on the new menu accessed by a two-finger pull down, which I find a bit easier to use. It came with the 4.2.2 update but I don't know whether it is common to all devices/manufacturers.
