Since a recent update of ButtonMapper the functionality to make a "system screenshot" (if you have root) seemed to be replaced by a "app screenshot", which is limited in some apps as Instagram of Snapchat and also makes a very annoying clicker sound. I understand non rooted users prefer this over nothing. But I like to have my "system screenshot" back when I long press the Volume Down button.

I bought the Pro version of ButtonMapper and I have root access. Can someone please tell me how I can assign my "system screenshot" functionality back to long press Volume Down in Button Mapper? I miss it so hard.


the developer build this in but you have to know... if you want a system screenshot instead of a limited app screenshot do the following in ButtonMapper:

  1. be sure to have root access

  2. press the 3 dots

  3. select "check for root"

  4. now assign the screenshot functionality again to the desired button

  5. ButtonMapper is making a "system screenshot" instead of an "app screenshot"!
