Taking a screenshot comes in handy when you want to share something on your phone with your friends or saving it for use in the future. Taking a screenshot is quite easy, all you need to do is press the volume button and the power button.

Sometimes, taking a screenshot of a single screen is not enough and you might want to take a full-page screenshot or a scrolling screenshot. A full-page screenshot allows you to capture more than what’s on your screen at present, which may be useful while capturing long conversations.

While some smartphone makers such as OnePlus and Xiaomi have an in-built feature that allows users to capture full-page screenshots, some other smartphone makers do not provide this feature.
