    Tried to take a screen shot holding volume down and power button. That brings up the power off screen. I turned off Bixby routines which used to come up whith the power off button. That button does power off the phone.

    So how do we take a screen shot now?

    There’s a knack to pressing both buttons simultaneously. I regularly get it annoyingly wrong myself, on one phone in particular. But are you saying that in your case it doesn’t work even with impeccable technique?

    Hold the two buttons briefly and then release. On my Pixel 3 XL you held the buttons until you got the screenshot taken animation. On the Samsungs you get that *after* you release the buttons. If you continue to hold them you get the power buttons.

    Thanks, that worked. On my older phones I held until the shot.

    It's a bit counterintuitive.

    You can also add screenshot to the edge panel tasks if you use the panel

    Well that explains why I was doing it wrong . I came from a Pixel 3xl . I happened to stumble onto releasing the buttons quickly to get it to work on the 20+.
