3 Ways To Take A Screenshot On Your Realme C21Y

The Classic Button Combo: Power and Volume Down

The most common method for taking screenshots on Android smartphones, including the realme C21Y, involves a simple button combination. Here’s how to do it:

1. Navigate to the screen you want to capture – it could be a webpage, an app, or anything else displayed on your phone.
2. Locate the physical buttons on your realme C21Y. The power button is usually located on the right side of the phone, while the volume down button is typically on the left side.
3. Press and hold both the power button and the volume down button simultaneously. You’ll hear a shutter sound or see a screen animation indicating a successful screenshot capture.

Congratulations! You’ve just captured your first screenshot on your realme C21Y. The screenshot will automatically be saved to your phone’s gallery, usually in a dedicated “Screenshots” album.

The Three-Finger Swipe: A Gesture for the Modern User

For those who prefer a more fluid approach, the realme C21Y offers a convenient gesture-based screenshot method. Here’s how to enable it:

1. Open the Settings app on your realme C21Y.
2. Scroll down and tap on “Additional Settings.”
3. Look for the option labeled “Screenshot” and tap on it.
4. Within the Screenshot menu, you’ll find a toggle for “3-finger Swipe Down.” Enable this toggle.

Now, whenever you want to capture a screenshot, simply swipe down on the screen with three fingers simultaneously. Just like the button combo method, you’ll hear a shutter sound or see a screen animation confirming the screenshot capture. The screenshot will be saved to your gallery’s “Screenshots” album.

Customizing the Three-Finger Swipe (Optional)

The three-finger swipe method offers a bit more flexibility compared to the button combo. Here’s how to explore the customization options:

1. With the 3-finger swipe method enabled (as mentioned in the previous section), tap on the text that says “Screenshot” within the Screenshot menu in Settings.
2. You’ll see three options: “Take screenshot,” “Scroll capture,” and “Partial screenshot.”

Take screenshot: This is the default behavior, where a simple three-finger swipe down captures the entire screen.

  • Scroll capture: This option allows you to capture long webpages or documents that extend beyond a single screen. With scroll capture enabled, swiping down with three fingers will initiate a scrolling screenshot, automatically capturing the entire content even if it requires scrolling.
  • Partial screenshot: This feature lets you capture only a specific portion of the screen. With partial screenshot enabled, swiping down with three fingers will bring up a selection tool. You can then drag the corners to select the desired area and capture only that portion.

  • Accessing Screenshots from the Quick Panel

    Did you know you can also access the screenshot functionality directly from the Quick Panel? Here’s how:

    1. Swipe down from the right corner of your screen to bring down the Quick Panel.
    2. Look for the tile labeled “Screenshot.” If you don’t see it readily, you can customize the Quick Panel by tapping the three dots in the top right corner and selecting “Edit buttons.” From there, you can drag the “Screenshot” tile to your desired location in the Quick Panel.
    3. Tapping the “Screenshot” tile in the Quick Panel will capture the screen using the default method (which is likely the button combo method unless you’ve changed it).
