    I went to the Play Store and tried several Apps that takes a snapshot/picture of my screen. None have worked so far. They all required that I simultaneously push the Power & Volume buttons at the same time.

    Nothing happens and no pic gets stored to any file, etc.

    Do you have recommendations on an App that may work? I have a Moto E 2nd Gen 4G LTE. Android 5.1.

    If you wait a little longer, till the Marshmallow update, you'll be able to take screenshots simply by tapping on the share button in Now on Tap.....(I'm presuming it'll work the same as with Moto G 3rd Gen.)

    Power and Volume Down together. Try it a few times. You can edit them later. Automatically saves to a Screenshots folder in Gallery.

    What Ian Morgan2 said is correct (I have Marshmallow). I have a MXPE with the volume rocker and off button placed too close together requiring contortions to take a screen shot, so the Marshmallow way is a godsend.

    I, nor probably others, are in a mood to accept answers that suggest one to wait for a future App or Update, as I'm sure you agree, but still... thanks for the replies.

    I still have not found a solution to this problem, so if you same guys/gals or others have opinions/advice, I sincerely would like to hear it...

    ...unless of course you suggest I wait for a future App or upgrade to occur. LOL! (jk'g!)

    Thank you for your help.

    I have a Moto G 1st gen (2013) on 5.1.1, upgraded from 4.4 and possibly 4.1.

    I also have a Moto X Pure / Style (2015) on 6.0.

    I previously had two Samsung models, which use a different method.

    Both my Motorola"s have a Help app which outlines how to take a screenshot.
    It has always been the same method on these and most non Samsung devices.

    I have never heard of needing a screenshot app, as it's built in to the Android and device OS. Perhaps they are for editing screenshots.

    You possibly have a hardware issue.

    To put your mind at rest, as questions on this quickie forum get overlooked er quickly, ask again while saying hi to the senior, highly experienced site Ambassadors in the following forum:
