Sometimes I get a notification in the notification bar, I pull it down, and then I want to take a screenshot. I press the power button to make the screenshot, a menu appears to either shutdown, restart or make a screenshot. When this popup menu appears, the pulldown menu disappears. I've tried another screenshot app, but that didn't work either.

How can I take a screenshot of the notification pulldown menu?

    Isn't the normal way (volume down + power button) working? – Botond Jun 8 '18 at 9:14

You just have press and hold volume down and home key for some time

    This isn't an answer. When I take a screenshot, I press the power button on my phone, then a menu pops up where I can choose to restart or make a screenshot. When this menu appears, the dropdown disappears. – SPRBRN Jun 10 '18 at 8:59
  • @SPRBRN You have to press the power button and the volume down button at the same time. Then the menu should not appear. If it still appears the device manufacturer has destroyed the screenshot function, because on a AOSP device it works. – Robert Sep 6 '18 at 8:01
  • Confirm this works on my Google Pixel. – Luke Vo Nov 2 '20 at 10:55
