First of all, make sure that the hard keys such as “Power” and “Volume down” are working fine. To do so, check both buttons individually to see if they are working and functioning properly.

Reboot Your Phone

At the very beginning, you should consider rebooting your phone. Sometimes, the minor bugs in the phone cause different kinds of issues which can be easily eliminated by restarting.

Avoid Incognito Mode

Avoid incognito mode

The screenshot is not allowed in incognito mode as per the Google Chrome policy. Therefore, if you are trying to take a screenshot in Incognito mode, then it won’t capture.
