Why apps prevent screen capturing, and how to disable the restriction Some apps present sensitive data (e.g. banking apps) or copyright-protected content (e.g. video streaming apps). App developers can opt to use the Android platform’s FLAG_SECURE setting to prevent the screen from being captured, recorded, or shown on “non-secure displays” such as the ...

So basically, when you are putting something in the file system (like when you are taking a screenshot) you have to broadcast ACTION_MEDIA_SCANNER_SCAN_FILE so that other applications are aware of it (otherwise android photo gallery can not display your screenshot). So Snapchat has to wait for that broadcast and when it receives the broadcast it just has to ...

You can check the scrollscreenshot tool: https://github.com/PGSSoft/scrollscreenshot It makes multiple screenshots and simulates drag events to scroll content between each screenshot, then join all images into one. Disclaimer: I'm author of this tool, it was published by my employer. Feature requests are welcome.

As your device is rooted, you could use the Xposed module DisableFlagSecure: An Xposed Framework module that disables FLAG_SECURE on windows system-wide. This lets you take screenshots and do screen capture in apps that normally won't let you. (That said, you probably don't want to leave this on permanently). You can of course also find it in the Xposed ...

Old question , posting to add alternative using Google Now on Tap on Marshmallow, which does away with failed attempts in getting the right combo of keys correctly pressed (at times I ended up rebooting :-) This has the advantage of better organising screenshots or sharing directly with contacts using Direct Share, which pops up when you wish to share ...

You can use Scrcpy or Vysor app and project your android screen to computer screen and then take screenshot on your PC.

Android's hotkey to take screenshots is Vol Down and Power pressed simultaneously for about 3 seconds. The delay is there to prevent accidental presses. ( Samsung phones hotkey is the Power and Home button )

It works out that you just have to keep trying. The Power and Volume down together (for around a second) will eventually yield a screenshot about 1 time out of a hundred. Took a look at most of the apps out there and they either need you to root the device or install loads of other stuff, work for phones rather than tablets or just don't work. Guess I'm ...

Long press the volume down and power buttons at same time to capture a screenshot anywhere instead of using power menu selection. Android collapses the status bar as soon as you open power menu, so that will not work. And use Google Goggles for Chinese translation.

If what are you asking for is the location of the thumbnails displayed by Android when switching apps, then (on my LineageOS 13) they are stored inside /data/system/recent_images as PNG files called x_task_thumbnail.png (x being a possibly random number). Since the thumbnails are owned by user system and group system, and their octal permissions are 600, ...

Remove that lowercase "m" in https://i.stack.imgur.com/XXXXXm.png (More Info) The screenshot has nothing to do with your cameras. A screenshot is taken by the system (or the graphics driver), who takes one frame from its rendering buffer and saves the frame. Thus a screenshot always has the same resolution as your screen, and is always a PNG. Changing ...

Taking a screenshot requires root or system permissions (or an root exploit). I assume your ROM is a official Lineage release. Assuming further that their signing key has not leaked the app you are searching for should use root permissions is part of the OS. Therefore a first step would be revoke all allowances for apps to use root permissions. List ...

Unfortunately I also don't know a way how to configure the format used by the system screenshot function that can be triggered via Volume-Down + Power. However if you can trigger your screenshots via adb and the screencap command let you choose which image format is used. You can select if by the file extension: screencap /sdcard/screenshot1.png If you don'...

The screencap command can be configured to capture a specific display using the option -d. -d: specify the physical display ID to capture. See dumpsys SurfaceFlinger --display-id for valid display IDs. The output of dumpsys SurfaceFlinger --display-id is a bit longer, therefore you can filter out the display ids: dumpsys SurfaceFlinger --display-id | ...

Try holding Power + Home together a few moments. it works on all Samsung phones. Also there's an alternative solution which works only on Samsung and Android 4.0+ phones (has to be activated in Settings > My device [tab] > Motions and gestures > Palm motion > Capture screen). It works by Swiping screen with the side of your hand.

It might probably due to permissions error in KitKat (and Lollipop) running Android phones. ♦ Layman Solution : The most common way is to reboot your android phone and try taking the screenshot. If it doesn't cut it, try going into safe mode and come back to normal mode back. ♦ Professional Solution : Wipe dalvik cache in recovery mode. ♦ For Xiaomi users ...

The clipboard (like on Windows for instance) can hold different types of data. Raw images (like your screenshot) are one of those possible clipboard contents and thus you can paste them in, given that the app you use allows you to paste image data from your clipboard. The supported data types that the clipboard can hold are mentioned in the Android ...

Touchshot is an app I use which has both you are looking for Hover button (overlay) JPEG / PNG - JPEG quality 80 /90 /100 and resolution can be varied from 640 x 360 , 1280 x 720, 1920 x 1080 Minimum size by manipulating these is still around 100 kB and not as low as you want.

You might want to give Virtual Xposed a spin. It is an application that acts as a sort of "host" for other user apps you can install inside it. It then has full control over the process of the inner app, and can apply the functionality of some Xposed apps without requiring an unlocked bootloader or Root. However, it can only work for Xposed modules that ...

The Android built in screenshot function does not support to specify the filename. One alternative way for triggering a screenshot would be to use adb shell via USB or Wifi from a connected PC. On the shell you can execute screencap /sdcard/screenshot1.png and therefore specify the filename.

Basically, it's gone and you can't just "get it back"... A quick Google search would have answered this from multiple sources including Google itself, but I will to answer it. They (Google) removed that screenshot method from Android 11 and replaced it with a screenshot tool in the task switching screen using "swipe up and hold" gesture. ...

This is not possible unless 1. you have root access(delete the sound file) or 2. Use a 3rd party trusted screenshot app or 3. Disable system sound(yeah it will disable notifications sounds and all too) I'd recommend you to use a 3rd party app(you can use power and volume button to take screenshots by the app by over-riding system's screenshot system) You can ...

If the buttons don't work, you could always try using ADB from a computer. Root is not required but USB Debugging must be enabled. Then just run: adb shell screencap -p /sdcard/screen.png adb pull /sdcard/screen.png adb shell rm /sdcard/screen.png These commands will produce a screenshot and save it in the sdcard directory (on some devices, including the ...

You can try this widget : Photo Widget, which allows you to put images on your home screen. Or the application Evernote but it is a bit heavy for what you need however this app is very useful. Hope this will help

You can make a screenshot by pressing the Volume down and Power buttons at the same time. This is a default feature since Android 4.0.

Press and HOLD 'power key' and 'Volume down' key together.

Put the side of your hand on the left side of the screen and swipe to the right. That should do it.
