Taking screenshots on your computer is a feature that always proves to be very useful. Whether it’s to log error messages, to share some image from a website, or for any other purpose, taking a screen log has become so commonplace that Microsoft decided to create a native screen capture application for Windows 10.
And what about smartphones? It’s a feature that all devices also offer, but in some cases it can be a little tricky. You know when you want to save a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation or a Twitter thread, but you need to make multiple entries because they don’t fit in a single image? Then it is necessary to send the various images, which may even be out of order.
How to take a screenshot on Samsung
There is a very simple way to solve this problem if you have a Samsung cell phone. The Galaxy line has a native feature that allows you to take a sequence of prints from the same page in an easy and intuitive way. You can also edit and cut the print, if you need to remove any part of the conversation, for example.
Below, see how to do this on any device from the South Korean company.

The first thing to do is print. The record is saved by quickly pressing the button to activate the screen and the button to decrease the volume. When you do this, a menu will appear at the bottom of the screen. The option that interests us for now is the first one, which is highlighted in the image above.

By pressing the icon, the phone will slide the page from top to bottom and automatically make the new print. You can do this as many times as necessary until you put the entire sequence on the same image.
It’s important to note that if you try to use the feature on websites or apps with video (such as the Twitter or Instagram timeline), it can interrupt the sequence.

Once finished, the extended print is automatically saved in the phone gallery, and there are some other features that can be useful. The three other icons are also native to Samsung mobile phones. The first one allows you to make a cutout of the print. If you only need a page and a half, for example, after making the second record, just select this option and make the cut.
The second icon allows you to make tags automatically, just like the hashtags on social networks, while the third is for sharing the screenshot on WhatsApp, by email, Instagram or other social networks.
