    I find the palm swipe the best for me. Especially if it is in my car mount or on the tabl . It's seems easier to palm swipe then anything else

    So i just bought the Note10+ and I gotta say when I moved to Google I felt relief but I needed more specs to be able to play awesome emulation games such as my childhood favorite game super mario sunshine and to be honest I was very impressed on how well the game ran on dolphin compared to running it on a device with 3 to 4GB of RAM, now 12GB may not seem much to extreme enthusiasts but it's enough to play slot of old games via emulation, and with Android 10 coming soon for the Note 10/10+ its gonna be even better.

    However i do have a question how do I take a screenshot?

    I use the 2 button method, briefly hold the power and volume down buttons.

    You can also use the s-pen to capture part of the screen, or ask Bixby

    Although I haven't tried it, I thought that, out of the box, side key + volume down brings up the power screen, i.e. off, restart, etc. And to the OP, congrats!! -Redeye

    thats if you hold down on the buttons. if you just tap them together then you get a screen shot.......palm swipe is much easier for me at least.....i guess i'm just used to doing it on the note 8.

    The free app called Simple Control has a convenient on-screen screenshot trigger. If you do a lot of screenshots you might consider a software button to avoid wears on the physical buttons.

    Power+Home doesn't work with the on screen home button on the Note.

    But the options are:
    1. Palm swipe
    2. Volume Down + Power
    3. Remove the S-Pen and use Smart Select
    4. Ask Bixby
