Questions and Answers
I am taking a screenshot with a scrolling window on Android.
Hi there! I am trying to take a screenshot of a really long page on my Android phone. How do I capture the scrolling page in one screenshot? Thanks!
You can use Stitch & Share where you take several screenshots as you scroll down, and they get attached to each other. Make sure that the next image overlaps the previous one (keep the previous content on the new screen).
You can also use Panoramic Screenshot, which requires the top and bottom part of the screen to be the same for a successful attempt to append images to each other.
On some Samsung devices, you can stitch screens with built-in features.
- 1Open the page that you want to save as a long picture.Advertisement
- 2Take out S Pen.
- 3Launch Air Command.
- 4Select "Screen write".The screenshot will be taken.
- 5Select "Scroll Capture" in the bottom-left corner.
- 6Select "Capture more".Continue capturing the screenshots.
- 7Select "Done" when you have reached the bottom of the long scrolling screen.
- 8Select "Save in Gallery".Advertisement
