With every new model release, Huawei is staying faithful to all those features that have granted its success. Ease of use is one of them so, if you were wondering how to screenshot on Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3, you’d be happy to hear that nothing changed since the previous models. But let us just assume that you are starting from scratch and show you in this tutorial, step-by-step, what you need to do.
As you probably know, the screenshot – or the screengrab as it is also called – is not a new feature on Android. Nevertheless, the process went through some adjustments through time and different manufacturers have different preferences in terms of what to implement and what to change with this feature. With Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3, for instance, it’s all a matter of pressing a couple of buttons but not just in any order – at the same time!
To take a Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3 screenshot:
- Access the smartphone window that you want to screenshot;
- Simultaneously press and hold the Power and the Volume Down buttons;
- Release the buttons as soon as the screen flashes and you hear the shutter noise.
If you weren’t paying attention and didn’t notice the shutter noise, the drop-down notification that usually comes after successfully taking a screenshot on Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3 will also confirm you the action. When you see it, you can tap on it and you should be able to see the screenshot that you just took.
To recap, it takes pressing two buttons and when you see a flash and you hear a shutter noise, you’re done. Then, you can either access the notification tray or the Gallery App of the smartphone and you’ll see the picture. That’s how you screenshot on Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3.
Bonus Tip – The notification pull-down bar is also called Quick Settings. If you pull down twice and then you tap on the edit button sitting close to the gear icon (the Settings icon), you’ll discover a one-tap screenshot button. Every time when you tap on it, you will automatically snap a screenshot of the screen you are currently on. That’s another way to screenshot on Huawei P20/P10/P9/P8/Honor 10/9/8/7/Mate 10/9/8/Y9/Y5/Y3.
