    My S9+ can take screenshots with the hand swipe, bixby, and the volume down+ power button but for some reason it's not taking screen shots with the power + home button which is the method I always used on my S7. Anyone know if this is not an option anymore with the S9+? if so I would be pretty bummed :(

    Press Power and volume down key simultaneously for a screenshot. Alternatively you can do a palm swipe as well.

    thanks for the reply, as I mentioned those methods work but I'm trying to see if i can make the power + home button work since that's my preferred method

    That's not an option anymore without the physical home button. Same goes for my note 8 without the physical button. Just as easy and convenient in my opinion.

    How do you take a screeny, but not show the edge panel pullout tab in the capture?

    The only way I can see is to crop out the edge a bit. So annoying that this is still an issue.
