How do I take a screenshot on my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 without the volume display showing on screen?
I assume you're on TouchWiz and are trying to take a screenshot by using Vol - and Power.
On TouchWiz it's Home + Power.
there are many free app on the Play Store that can acquire a screenshot without pressing any physical button on your phone. Please take a look there: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.icecoldapps.screenshoteasy. Hope to help you!
I have battled this issue ever since they pushed Android version 4.2.2. On my Galaxy Tab model GT-P5113 the power + volume down would work only about once every 10-20 attempts. Since the new build was pushed last week I checked it again. Now the screen shot does not work at all.
But I gave up long ago and came up with a solution. I use my Samsung Victory telephone to take a picture of the tablet and send that to the tablet to by whatever share method is handy.
Press Vol - plus Power button at the same time.
