How to Take Scrolling Screenshots on Android [5 Simple Steps]

A scrolling screenshot is a screenshot that captures the entire content of a page, even if it is longer than what can be displayed on the screen at once. This is useful for capturing long web pages, chat conversations, or other types of content that would otherwise be difficult to capture in a single screenshot.

In this guide, I will show you how to take a screenshot of the entire content of a page. Consider reading below for more details.

Before getting started:

  • Make sure your phone is running Android 11 or later.
  • Check that the screenshot tool is enabled. On most phones, you can do this by going to Settings and selecting System > Gestures > Screenshot.
  • Make sure there is enough content to scroll through. If the screen you are on doesn’t have much content, you won’t see the Capture More option.

Steps to Take Scrolling Screenshots on Android

Many Android devices come with built-in scrolling screenshot functionality. Here’s how to use it:

  • Navigate to the webpage or where you want to capture it and make sure it’s fully loaded.
  • Press and hold the “Volume Down” and “Power” buttons simultaneously for a few seconds. Alternatively, you can swipe down the notification bar and click on the “Screenshot” icon.
  • Once you take a regular screenshot, a preview appears at the bottom left or right of your screen (depending on your device). Click on it.
  • The screen will shift to the scrolling screenshot mode, indicating that you can scroll down to capture more content. Scroll slowly, and the screenshot will automatically extend to include the additional content.
  • When you’ve captured all the necessary content, tap the “Done” or “Save” button to save the scrolling screenshot to your gallery.

Please note that the availability of this feature may depend on your Android device’s manufacturer and software version.

Taking scrolling screenshots is a great way to capture long pieces of content. It’s a handy feature that can be used for a variety of purposes. I hope this guide has helped you learn how to take scrolling screenshots on Android devices. Learn more about how to take screenshots on any Android phone.
