Re: HTC EVO 4G Screen Shot -HOW?

indy46214,

Thank you for using Sprint Community for your questions.  There's no built in function in the Evo 4G that allows for taking screen shots.  There appears to be a 3rd party application called "Shoot Me" that will allow you to perform that function, though.

Hope this helps,

hit the home button and power button at the same time. if done correctly you will then have your screen shot.

2) Screenshot(s) of results from SpeedTest.net app or website.

To take a screenshot on the EVO LTE, press the power button and home button at the same time. The photo is saved to the phone storage under DCIM

Actually, I don't believe any of the 3rd party will work without rooting either.

On the OEVO or the LTEVO? The LTEVO is as you describe and it saves to a folder called Screenshots within the Pictures folder, e.g.

  • /mnt/sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots

But I don't recall the OEVO getting the Screenshot feature unless it happened on a more recent update.

The home and power keys are instructions for screenshots using the Evo Design, however not for the Evo 4G.  There are several screenshot applications on the Play Store that are available without rooting the device.  Just search for "screenshot" in the play store.

Not sure how well they work, but they do exist.

one of these 2 methods works for the EVO LTE as well..if im remembering right its the home+power button..

matter of fact i just read it in another thread with people posting their EVO LTE speeds screen shots..someone posted for those that didnt know how to do the ss.

the old EVO is dead in the water when it comes to screen shots unless you use another app or are rooted.

Correct method is Power Button and Volume Down button simultaneously.
