How to take screenshot on Amazon Fire Phone

Taking screenshot on Amazon Fire Phone is quite similar to Android.

  • Press power and volume-down buttons simultaneously on your Amazon Fire Phone.
  • After pressing them for few seconds you will get an audible alert which lets you know that the screenshot was taken.
  • Now the screenshot will be saved in the gallery on your phone in the ‘screenshots’ folder.

Like in the Android phones you don’t need to go to your phone’s gallery to find that screenshot, just pull down the top of the display and you will find the usual “screenshot” captured notification. Pull it down and you will find an option to share the screen through any connected services.
