    I've just acquired a reconditioned Pixel 3 and am trying to figure out a few things. Apparently, this model didn't come with a manual and guessing hasn't solved my problems yet!

    How do I do screen captures in the Pixel 3 running Android 11?

    I've tried it now and found that the only reliable way to get the screen cap was by holding down the Power button and choosing Screen Cap; the other methods either failed entirely or hardly ever worked. (Pressing power and volume simultaneously was really hit or miss, mostly miss. I suppose I was usually pushing one down SLIGHTLY before the other no matter how I held the phone.)

    I can live with that so thanks again; it will make it easier to explain any problems I'm having with the phone ;-)
