    How to take a screenshot on Samsung Galaxy A52 in 5 different ways. There are several ways to take a screenshot on the Samsung Samsung Galaxy A52. Samsung offers no less than five ways to take a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy A52. You can press the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time, swipe your palm across the screen, or tell Bixby to take a screenshot.


    It's amazing how often you need to take a screenshot on your phone, whether it's capturing a moment from a social media post, blocking the winning screen in a game, or capturing a webpage image. The good news is that not only is it easy to take a screenshot on your Samsung Galaxy A52, but there are several ways you can do it, so you can rely on what is simpler or works best for you.



    How to take a screenshot on a Samsung Galaxy A52 using buttons

    Although Samsung offers you a few different ways to take a screenshot, the traditional way, which is more similar to the method you may know from other phones, is to use the buttons on the side of the phone.

    1. Set the screen the way you want to capture it.
    2. Press the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time and hold them for a second or two until the screenshot is taken. You will see the screen flash and shrink slightly.
    3. The screenshot toolbar will appear at the bottom of the screen for a few seconds. You can use the tools to edit the image or, if you do nothing, the screenshot will be automatically saved in the Gallery.

    How to take a screenshot on Samsung Galaxy A52 using the palm of your hand

    Many Android phones allow you to perform common tasks with gestures, and the Samsung Galaxy A52 allows you to take a screenshot by swiping the edge of the palm across the screen. This should be turned on by default, but if you want to be sure, do this:




    1. Open the Settings app.
    2. Tap "Advanced Features".
    3. Tap "Movements and gestures".
    4. Make sure the “Palm swipe to capture” option is enabled by sliding the switch to the right.

    Once configured, you can take a screenshot using the palm of your hand. Do that:

    1. Configure the screen with the content you want to capture.
    2. Place the edge of your palm over the edge of the screen so that your little finger points along the long edge of the phone.
    3. In one smooth motion, slide your palm over the phone. You can do this in both directions: right to left or left to right.

    You will see the screen flash and shrink, indicating that the screenshot has been successfully captured.

    How to take a screenshot on a Samsung Galaxy A52 using Bixby

    Bixby, which is Samsung's personal assistant (similar to Apple's Siri), can also take a screenshot on your behalf. Assuming Bixby has been set up (if it's not set up, press the Bixby button below the volume controls on the left side of the Samsung Galaxy A52 to prepare Bixby for business), here's what you need to do:


    1. Configure the screen with the content you want to capture.
    2. Say "Hey Bixby, take a screenshot".

    Bixby will take a screenshot and save the image to the Gallery.


    How to screenshot part of the Samsung Galaxy A52 screen with Edge panels

    The Samsung Galaxy A52 has a few Edge panels that you can enable and access quickly with a swipe on the side of the screen. You can't use an Edge panel to take a full screen screenshot, but you can use an Edge panel to take a segment of the screen.


    Before you can use an Edge panel to capture part of your screen, you need to activate the appropriate panel - it's not active by default.


    1. Launch the Settings app.
    2. Tap “Display” and then tap “Edge screen”.
    3. Tap “Perimeter Panels” to view the list of available panels.
    4. The first, App edge, is probably already enabled. Tap "Smart Selection" to make sure it's also enabled.

    After turning it on, here's how to capture a portion of the screen with the Edge panel:

    1. Configure the screen with the content you want to capture.
    2. Swipe from the right edge of the screen to the left, over the middle of the screen. If you are on the home page of the phone, it would be above the Google Assistant search box. On any other screen, swipe high enough on the screen to be above the midpoint.
    3. Scroll until you see the smart selection options. If you've activated more than one panel, you may need to scroll a few times.
    4. When the Smart Selection panel appears, tap the desired tool, such as the rectangle.
    5. Position and resize the selection on the screen, then tap “Done”.
    6. When you're ready, tap the Save button at the bottom of the screen (it's an arrow pointing down) to save your selection to the Gallery.

    Samsung Galaxy A52 does not turn on, what to do


    How to take swipe screenshots of Samsung Galaxy A52 screen

    When you take a full screenshot using any of the above methods, using the buttons, palm or Bixby, you can edit the screenshot before saving it using the screenshot toolbar that appears at the bottom of the screen for a few seconds.


    Perhaps the most powerful feature in the toolbar is the slide capture button, which allows you to take screenshots of web pages that are much longer than your phone's display.

    1. Configure the screen with the content you want to capture, such as a web page.
    2. Take the screenshot using the buttons, palm or Bixby method.
    3. When the toolbar appears, tap the slide capture button to extend the length of the screenshot. Each time you tap the button, it adds an extra length to the bottom of the screenshot, so you can tap it repeatedly for a very long page.
