It’s an essential feature for new tablets and phones to have the ability to take screenshots or capture an image of what is currently displayed on the screen of your Samsung Galaxy Tab A8.
So here’s a step-by-step guide:
How To Take A Screenshot On The Samsung Galaxy Tab A8
You can take a screenshot on the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 in both landscape and portrait modes. All you need to do is press the Power + Volume Down buttons together. As soon as you do so, you’ll notice your entire screen blinking for a hot second, with a Shutter sound emanating right after(if the sound is enabled)
After you take a screenshot, you’ll notice a toolbar on the bottom right with three options. From left to right, they are:
- Vertical Screenshot
- Edit Image
The screenshot will automatically be saved to your gallery if you do not tap on any of these options. If you want to head to your screenshot quickly and don’t feel like opening in the gallery, you can swipe your fingers vertically downwards to open up the Notification Center.
Once you head to the Notification Center, you’ll be able to open up the image by tapping on it, which will lead you straight to your gallery.
Take A Screenshot on Galaxy Tab A8 Using Your Palm
- Navigate to the screen or app where you intend to capture a screenshot on your Samsung device.
- Swipe your palm across the screen
This method might not work if the settings aren’t enabled. Here’s what you need to do to enable this:
- Open Settings
- Advanced Features
- Motions and Gestures
- Enable Palm Swipe To Capture
Now every time you swipe your palm across the screen your device will capture a screenshot.
How To Take A Long Screenshot On Galaxy Tab A8
If you are on a page that allows for scrolling, you can take a screenshot that’s longer in length by using the aforementioned process. Then, press the button that appears on the toolbar on the left.
Now, keep pressing the button, and your tablet will automatically scroll downwards while also stitching the image together. If you stop pressing the button, the stitched-up screenshot is automatically added to your gallery.
How To Edit Screenshot On Galaxy Tab A8
You can edit any screenshot on the Galaxy Tab A8 as soon as you capture it. To do so, tap on the middle button on the toolbar. As soon as you do so, your image will automatically open up in the editor.
With the editor open, you can use the S-Pen to add a particular note to your image or use it to crop and manipulate the screenshot further if needed.

To share a screenshot on the Galaxy Tab A8, you can either open up the Gallery or instead opt for the third option in the toolbar. With it, a quick share menu opens up, which will let you share your image swiftly.
