How to Take Scrolling Screenshots on the Samsung Galaxy S20 [Tutorial]


The Galaxy S20 is a marvel of a device and we are all well aware of that; the device chock-full of features that almost seem unnecessary at time but it is important to know that if you are paying a premium, having a phone that does not give you the features you do want would be an unnecessary thing.

The phone runs on Android 10 with Samsung's proprietary One UI 2.1 on top. Now what's amazing about this skin is that aside from being very light on the hardware, it is loaded with features that you are actually going to use rather than having something that is only going to be a resource hog.

Here is How You Can Take Scrolling Screenshots on Your Galaxy S20

We previously talked about how Samsung has changed the way you could take screenshots on your Galaxy S20; the process is now much easier. That also lead us to pen this tutorial up where we talk about how you can take scrolling screenshots.

The process is fairly simple and straightforward; follow the steps below and you are good to go. Before we begin, however, we have to make sure that the screenshot toolbar is enabled. By default, this was enabled on our unit, but it is still important to check.

  1. Head over to Settings on your device.
  2. Now scroll down to Advanced features and find the option that says "Screenshots and screen recorder"
  3. Tap on that, and once you enter the next menu, you will have the Screenshot toolbar right under the Screenshots tab. Simply make sure its toggled on.
  4. Now go back to any screen that you wish to and take a screenshot, a toolbar will appear at the bottom, and when it does, simply click on the highlighted button and the scrolling screenshot will be taken. You can press it multiple times depending on how long the page is.

That is all, folks! Following this tutorial will let you take scrolling screenshots with ease. However, depending on what you are taking the screenshots of, it is important to know that the readability gets affected if there are a lot of them taken in succession.
