    Haven't found a way to do this yet. Has anyone found a way on their Note 4. I loved this little convenience, and didn't know that until I couldn't do it on my Note 4, that I could pop out the sPen, hold the button, and tap the screen to take a screenshot. I miss that a lot. All help appreciated.

    I have found all the ways you can do it on the Note 4, supposedly, and what works best in place of that feature is using the wheel, but for me the other way was easier.

    Pull out the pen on the Note 4, choose Screen Write from the Action Menu and press the tick mark to save the screenshot.

    I don't like that method. Missing the way I could do it on my Note 3. Better IMO.

    Are you talking about a screenshot that you can write on or just a screenshot because you can do that with a palm swipe and not even take out your SPEN.

    Just press power and home buttons at the same time.

    Thanks. Didn't like that one either. In place of my favorite from the N3, I'm now using the palm swipe. It's the quickest and seems to work well enough. I prefer the sPen button option, though, still.

    ETA - The reason I prefer the sPen button option is because if you accidentally click off of the white wheel (the other way) you can just take the shot anyway.

    Never ever used the s pen. Use home and power button, takes a second.

    Wait, wait, wait, wait....

    Let's count the motions...
    Note 3
    1) remove pen
    2) press button
    3) tap screen ... takes screen shot

    Note 4
    1) remove pen
    2) press button
    3) tap screen (in the Action menu) ... takes screen shot

    Hey! Very similar! Is it the fact that you have to aim for the correct place to tap in the Action menu? LOL!

    Just joking! I hate it when they change stuff without consulting me! LOL!

    Swiping is easiest of all, but I'm used to the original way (pull pen and press to screen) and it just seemed dumb to remove it as an option. But then look at the big things they took away in the N5.
