Disabling screen capture
12-04-2015 11:01 PM
I first saw this on another forum but had to modify it some so it would work every time. If
the problem is that when you take a screen shot the screen goes BACK to the previous
screen BEFORE the screen shot is captured and therefore you get a screen shot of the
wrong screen, this will fix that problem.
When you have the screen you want to capture PULL DOWN THE NOTIFICATION
SCREEN. Then you press the Back button (keep holding it down) and QUICKLY press and
release the Home button while still holding down the Back button. Your phone will remove
the notification screen and capture the screen you wanted to capture but remember to keep
holding down the Back button until you hear the clicking sound of the screen capture itself.
Let me know if this helps.

- So has anybody figured out how to disable screen capture on a Droid Charge?
It takes a snapshot about once every 15 minutes I am using it. This seems to be related to the CPU locking up as it does something, and button press/release timing is thus exaggerated.
It wouldn't be so bad but it makes that damned photograph sound when it does that. I either look like a perv or look like I'm stealing secrets at work.
So I want to get rid of this unused monstrosity.
It occurs to me I could delete the snapshot sound, too, if that's possible.02-27-2013 09:41 AM
- " I either look like a perv or look like I'm stealing secrets at work.".....LOL...I have to laugh visualizing either of these and the looks you might get. I came looking for the same answer and there doesn't seem to be one. I am tired of the frickin' "inadvertent" screen shots as well. Looks like the only solution is to get a different phone. Other than the battery life, which I resolved by getting an aftermarket extended-life, this is about my only complaint. I can guarantee you I will do more research before dropping the cash on my next. If you found a solution please post.03-04-2013 12:14 PM
- My early pre-2 year upgrade option is in March, I want to get a Galaxy S IV, but maybe I will tough it out until the end of August when the 2 years proper is up and get it from somewhere besides Verizon.
With no apps open, I am using 244/373 meg of RAM (shouldn't that be 384? Another mystery) which makes browser close whenever I open some other app, thus I lose any edits in progress on web sites03-04-2013 02:54 PM
- OH MY GOD.
I tried a trick -- I have been removing the "ScreenCaptures" directory, but it just re-creates it. So I deleted it and created a file, not a directory, with that name, hoping to make it choke.
Well, it chokes, but it does not solve my problem. It still takes the capture stuipdly all the time but then says "Cannot store" or something like that, I forget exact.
So basically, it still takes the snapshot, complete with loud, "You are a pervert taking sly pictures of female coworkers or are a thief taking pictures of trade secrets" CLA-CLICK!.
As deleting the photos was about 1/10th of the irritation factor, my problem is 1/10th solved.03-25-2013 02:37 PM
- Idk what kind of phone you have but on my cubot x9 there is a built in app called Gesture Controle. If you go into it and pick Screen On Gesture you can turn off the screen shots. Also if you go into settings there is a Gesture Controle option that you can do the bacicaly the same thing.12-04-2015 11:01 PM
