    If that doesn't work, try to download app in play store which takes screen shot.

    Yeah. Just like that, right? :) @MD it's sometimes a "timing thing". Some devices are a little difficult with that, as you'll hardly manage to press both buttons at the exact same moment

    What you also can try: Long-press the power button and check the "power menu" popping up. I don't know for the Nexus, but many devices have a screenshot option in there. Might be easier and faster to use with "tricky-timing-devices".
