Screenshot Easy App

  • Beyond Just a Screenshot, you can do a lot of things like Screen Recorder, Entire Website Page Capture, and Scroll Capture.
  • After you Install this app, You can see this app in the Notification Bar. If you tap Capture, It will Capture the current screen on your Mobile.

Screenshot Touch App

Screenshot Touch App

  • It is similar to the above app. But in my usage, It is easy to use, because of the Touch Assistive menu. When you tap that Logo, It will Pop-up with the option for capture.

Touch Master App

Touch Master App

  • Download TouchMaster (Assistive Touch) App from Play Store.
  • There are a lot of Touch Assistants available, But they are loaded with some unwanted features. This app can make our work done with less storage.


If you are a Regular user, I advise you to use Physical keys, because you will rarely use the Screenshot feature. Palm swipe may take accidental screenshots. But, If you are a Developer or some techie guy who use several screenshots, use In-Built Palm Gesture or Play Store Apps. If you install from third-party sites, Always check the Background activities to avoid your Data stolen.

    • My problem with the Samsung Galaxy A10e screenshot implementation is that with a case on, the POWER and VOLUME DOWN buttons are nearly side by side, and I frequently hit both of them when trying to turn off the screen. It would be nice to be able to modify the controls such as POWER and VOLUME UP, which are separated. As you said, you don‘t use the screenshot function very often. But in my first two weeks of owning this phone, I must have inadvertently taken a dozen screenshots by accident.

      • You can do this by rooting. I won’t recommend Rooting for this purpose. If you use Hard Back case, Most of the time, you can avoid this kind of issue.
