  2. Open up Settings:
  3. Click on Screen and then check the box next to “Screenshot:  Capture screenshots by holding the Recent Apps Key”:
  4. Now, whenever you want to take a screen shot, simply hold the “recent apps key” for a second or two (it’s the double rectangle button on the bottom left of the screen):
    recent apps key
  5. Once a screenshot is taken, you’ll get a message asking to stay in screenshot mode (as well as a message letting you know the Screenshot is saved).  Select Yes to continue being able to take screenshots (if you select no, you’ll have to run through the above steps to re-enable screenshots):
