Use The Correct Combination Of Physical Buttons:

You need to check whether the method you are using to capture screenshots is valid or not in the form of physical buttons. If you are not using the correct combination of physical keys, then it could be the reason that is stopping your phone to take screenshots.

The most common method that is followed on Android smartphones to capture screenshots is:

Press and Hold Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously until the screenshot gets captured.

In case, if the above doesn’t work for you, then you should try this:

Just press the Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously. Don’t hold it, just press it once and see if it works.

Close All Open Apps From the Recent Apps Screen:

Try to remove all the opened apps from the recent app’s windows. There is a high chance some of the third-party apps that are already opened and running in the background might be preventing your phone to take a screenshot.

here is how you can do that,

  • Tap the recent app button located in the navigation bar at the bottom.
  • Once, the recent app window is opened, swipe up all the apps to close all of them.

Reboot Your Phone:

Most of the solution providers are of the view that rebooting your phone in a certain situation could resolve many issues. Types of issues that are related to software can be fixed by just restarting your phone.

Therefore, whenever you came across such issues, try the method of restarting your phone first.

Avoid Incognito Mode:

Taking screenshots in incognito mode won’t work as Google has terminated this functionality. Therefore, you need to check if you are in Incognito mode, first switch to normal mode on the browser, and then try to take screenshots.

Check Storage Capacity:

Most of the time, many features start malfunctioning due to low storage capacity, and like so this one. Therefore, when your phone is low on storage, and you try to take a screenshot, then it will not capture the screenshot due to low storage capacity and will neither find a place to save them.

Trying to free up disk space might resolve this issue.

Another best way to tackle software-related issues is by entering your phone into safe mode. Safe mode only runs the built-in applications that were installed by the OEMs. Thus, you can figure out easily if the third-party apps installed on your phone are causing this issue.
