When it comes to taking screenshots, you can use one of the standardized steps in order to capture a screen. We’ll also share a few other tips along the way, so make sure to stay tuned and check out the detailed step-by-step guide below. Before venturing any further, we’ll point out that the first step of locating, or setting up the specific screen you need captured wasn’t included, as it basically goes to show without saying. So without further ado, let’s get on with the guide.
1) Press and hold the Power key and the Volume Down button simultaneously. It’s of utmost importance you hold the given button simultaneously, meaning at the same time, or the command won’t take effect, leaving you empty-handed.
2) Wait until you hear the shutter sound and see a pop-up notification. The sound itself marks the command’s success, so one you’ve heard it, there’s no need for double checking, simply proceed to the final step.
3) Find the screenshot either by clicking on the notification or by manually accessing the gallery section.
If you’re in need of a more complex and slick way for taking screenshots on LG Optimus L7, we recommend trying out the No Root Screenshot It app. Available online for $4.99, the app allows you not only to take a screenshot with the mere click of a button, but set up and adjust the entire process to minute details through the use of such features as screenshot delay, image format adjustment and a peculiar Shake to Screenshot option allowing you to take screenshots by simply shaking the device.
So to just make sure we’ve got everything covered, let’s talk about the specific location of each the buttons required for the screenshot process. As mentioned, the use of Power and Volume Down keys is required. The Power key is the button located on the upper left side of the phone, the one used for turning the device, or just the screen on and off. The Volume Down key is the lower of the two merged buttons on the L7’s left side, the on used for volume adjustment.
