  1. Yea. Thanks Papa Sam. This tip ONLY works on devices which operate on OS version 4.0 and above. Hence, users with lower version eg Tecno N3, P3 etc with android 2.3 will only make a mess of the whole show.
    Tablets on android 4.2 (I can’t say of phones) have a button on the screen that enables this feature. Just click the button and have your screenshots.
    Anyway, I think there is an app that does same function; forgive me I don’t know the name because you would reason with me it is of no use getting an app when the function is in-built on my phone. Moreover, those low end phones are almost extinct.
