What is a Screenshot?

A screenshot sometimes referred to as a screencap or screengrab, is an image that shows the contents of a computer display. Screenshots let you capture exactly what you’re seeing on your screen to share with others or reference later.
Taking, saving, and sharing screenshots can be extremely helpful. Some insist that the screenshot is the most important thing on the internet. But how can a simple picture of your screen be so vital? Well, you see, screenshots often act as a new age artifact. They serve as a way to prove to others that you’re seeing the crazy stuff you’re seeing.

Three-Finger Gesture

This is the new way of taking screenshots. In addition to OnePlus’ new gesture navigation controls, the company offers a whole menu of different gestures that launch different actions. One of these, with the use of three fingers, quickly captures a screenshot.

  • Place three fingers on the OnePlus 8 Pro’s display and quickly swipe downward.

Scrolling Screenshot

Speaking of that toolbar, there is an option on it that allows you to take a scrolling screenshot. This is especially handy if you want to capture a website or some other content that takes up more length than what is just shown on-screen.

After you select the scrolling option, the OnePlus 8 Pro will begin moving further down the screen and capturing additional screenshots. You can either manually stop the process by tapping on the display, or the phone will automatically stop once it reaches the bottom of the page or it reaches a maximum image file size.

  • After taking the screenshot, when the animation of the screenshot pops up in the corner, tap on that screenshot.
  • Then tap on the Scroll option to take the full page screenshot.
