There are a few different options for capturing screenshots on the Galaxy Z Flip 4:

Using the Hardware Buttons

Using Power + Volume Down Buttons

  1. Open the screen you want to capture. This could be your home screen, an app, a webpage, etc.
  2. Press and hold the Side key and Volume down buttons simultaneously.
  3. The screen will briefly flash white when the screenshot is taken.
  4. A thumbnail preview of the screenshot will appear momentarily in the bottom left corner.

This method works from anywhere on your phone – whether you’re on the home screen, in an app, or on a website. It’s the fastest way to grab a screenshot without any advanced setup.

Using Palm Swipe

You can also take screenshots by swiping the edge of your hand across the screen from side to side. To enable this:

  1. Open the Settings app and tap Advanced Features.
  2. Tap Motions and gestures.
  3. Turn on the toggle for “Palm swipe to capture.”

Now you can place the side edge of your hand on the screen and swipe left or right to capture a screenshot. Make sure you use the side edge of your hand, not the palm.

Note that this gesture won’t work if you have any accessibility features enabled that use hand gestures for other actions.

Using Bixby Voice Commands

To set up Bixby:

  1. Press and hold the Side key.
  2. The Bixby interface will appear. Follow the prompts to complete any onboarding steps.
  3. You can now say, “Hi Bixby, take a screenshot,” anytime to trigger Bixby to snap a screenshot.

Using the Screenshot Toolbar

Screenshot Previews and Editing

After you take a screenshot using any of the methods above, a toolbar will temporarily appear at the bottom of the screen with some editing options:

  • Edit: Tap this to crop or draw on the screenshot. Your edited screenshot can then be saved to the Gallery.
  • Share: Tap this to choose an app to share your screenshot through, like messaging apps, social media, email, etc.
