    For some reason when I hold the power button and the volume down button together, my LG v20 is not taking a screenshot. I've read everywhere that this is how it's supposed to be done, but my phone does not do it. Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. Please help me Android Wizards.

    Welcome to the forums. I moved your thread to the V20 forum where it'll be easier getting feedback from other owners.

    If you are in the settings I believe that you can modify your combination

    I have a shortcut for capture+ on the second screen which seems to be easier than using a button combo

    I do this as well, but sometimes that may not be available, like if the Qslide window is up. I have used the power + volume down before, and it can be tricky to get the timing down.

    You can also add the capture+ shortcut in the second screen ot with your nav buttons at the bottom. But not sure why the power + volume down combo isn't working.

    Odd.... Mine is perfect. Are you hitting midway by accident?

    It works better when you hit the power button a split second before the volume down button.

    The button combination works in most cases but WILL NOT while within certain apps or when playing games. Dont bother with the second screen shortcut as it is not available either. What I had to do was 1): Go to SETTINGS>DISPLAY>HOME TOUCH BUTTONS>BUTTON COMBINATION. Then drag the "CAPTURE" button (looks like a pen inside of the border box) up to add it to the normal 3 HOME TOUCH BUTTONS which will now give you 4 buttons available. Now you will be able to access this button quick by flicking once from screen edge EVEN IN LANDCAPE (ROTATED) MODE AND WHEN IN APP/GAME. 2): THEN, if you want the Home Screen Buttons always available when using a specific app/game, from SETTINGS>DISPLAY>HOME TOUCH BUTTONS>HIDE HOME TOUCH BUTTONS, select the specific apps that you want your home touch buttons always visible in while using and unhide them individually from the list shown. The the HOME TOUCH BUTTONS (INCLUDING YOUR NEWLY ADDED SCREEN CAPTURE BUTTON) will now always be shown WITHOUT NEED TO FLICK THE SCREEN FROM THE EDGE. Hope this eases your frustration!

    Might be something wrong with your software. But alternatively you can press the capture+ button from the drop-down notification shortcut.

    I think that's true, some apps RESTRICT you from screen shooting due to copyright.. I think I've only encountered that once or something. Or you're not doing it right, there's a specific way of pressing the button in correct order.. some carriers like Verizon heavily modify the phone so that could be a reason too.

    My power+volume combo stopped working on my Moto G5+. It used to, but I went to do it yesterday & it didn't work. I can't figure out how to add or change shortcuts to use a different button.

    This happens to me sometimes. A reboot usually fixes it for a while.
