    This question applies to my nexus 10 also... and my rooted s3... being that you use the volume button when taking a screenshot, the volume bar always appears in the shot. how can you make it go away?

    You must be doing it wrong (ie: hitting the volume control prior to taking the screenshot). Hold the power button and THEN press VOLUME DOWN (ie: minus).

    If you can press them at exactly the same femtosecond that's the way to go but I press power first.

    I see.... What a pain in the ****. That works for me about 1 out of 5 tries.

    Also, there are apps that you can download that will let you take a screenshot by shaking the device. You open the app, enable the shake, then get to whatever you want a pic of and shake shake shake. I just got used to the button pressing, but there are other alternatives.

    Power button first while holding press the Down volume. Pisses me off when I get the volume in from rushing it too.

    What I do is hit the power button first to turn off/lock the screen then press the Power / volume down buttons at the same time... Never get the volume bar in my screen shots doing it that way.
