Do this to take screen shots on your playbook

[ Edited ]

You can take screenshots of ANY SCREEN on your playbook, automatically the picture(s) will be saved to the pictures folder.

  1. Go to the screen you want to save, either a web page or a setting menu, even the home screen can be saved.
  2. Once you are where on the desired screen, press the + and - buttons on the top of the tablet at the same time, you'll hear the camera sound when its taken.
  3. Check in your pictures folder, it should be there along with other pictures you had previously.

Please give kudos by pressing the Star below. Thanks.

Re: Do this to take screen shots on your playbook

This works well unless in Bridge mode. Then it is disabled.

I does work fine on BRIDGE and also when bridge is disable. I have no problems on either situation. I does not get disable the screenshot function when bridge is running and engaged to the phone.

It doesn't work in Bridge if your phone connects to a BES server.
