    Just thought i'd add this to the list of tips and trick because screen shots used to be difficult to take without a dedicated app.

    Simultaneously hold down the volume down and power buttons.

    The default location for saved screen shots should be by default:

    /mnt/sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots

    and by default it should be saved as a png image.



    If this information seems to be too much of a repeat of common knowledge, feel free to delete this thread.

    Works fine on my Kyocera Hydro Boost Android. It takes a few tries for some reason but it saves in pictures/screenshots.

    Thanks for a great tip!

    I just tested it, it works, also when you press power and volume, it will make a sound, so you know it worked, and the screenshot will popup like a lightbox. directly is exactly the same in the 1st post: /mnt/sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots
    hope this helps
