Default cannot take screenshot on mytouch 4g

I am trying to take a screenshot of my phone and seem unable to do so. I have tried pressing and holding the home (looks like a house, on the touch screen) and the power button at the same time.

All I get is either the power off options, screen goes to home, the screen goes to recently used apps, or some combination of these.

I do not seem to have a folder for screenshots under the camera

I am using android 2.3.6

Phone is less than a week old

Unfortunately unlike the iPhone, there is no standard way to take a screenshot in Android Froyo 2.2 or Gingerbread 2.3 without rooting your phone. It's puzzling why Google did not build this feature into Android.

You can try this app before rooting: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.edwardkim.android.screenshotitfulln oroot
