If you’ve ever found yourself taking multiple screenshots of a webpage to share with someone else, you have probably found yourself infuriated that you can’t just take a long screenshot of the whole thing. With the help of the helpful feature scrolling screenshot (available on Android and iPhone), this can be easily achieved without the help of third-party apps. This article will explain how to take a scrolling screenshot on Android and iPhone.
What is a scrolling screenshot?
A scrolling screenshot allows you to take a longer screenshot that includes everything you’d see by scrolling up or down the screen.
Take a Scrolling Screenshot on Android
On phones running Android 11 or later, you can take a scrolling screenshot from the standard power and volume down shortcut.
- Press the button combination (Power + Volume down) to capture a screenshot.
- Tap on the option Capture More next to the thumbnail of the captured screenshot.
- This will take you to a page where you find a long snapshot of the page. Drag until you’ve reached the desired point.
- There is a pen icon that you can use to annotate. You can then tap Save the screenshot when done.
Take a Scrolling Screenshot on iPhone
On iPhones running iOS 14 or later, you can take a scrolling screenshot from the built-in screenshot tool. The only catch is that it works on a select number of Apple’s first-party apps like Safari and Pages, and others like Google Chrome.
- Press the button combination (Power + Volume up) for an iPhone with Face ID and (Power and Home button) for an iPhone with a Home button to take a screenshot.
- Tap on the screenshot in the bottom lower-left corner.
- Switch to the Full Page tab to capture the scrolling screenshot.
- Tap Done to save the screenshot as a PDF, choose the location and tap Save.
