How to take screenshot on CM 10.2 / 11 (Android 4.3 / 4.4)

In a previous article I have shown you how to update Galaxy Tab P1000 to Android 4.3 using CyanogenMod 10.2 custom ROM. One cool stuff that I like is how easy it is to take screenshot on CM 10.2. This is also available on CM 11 (Android 4.4 KitKat)

People say that to take screenshot on Android 4.0 and up, by default, just press and hod the Power button + Volume Down but it doesn’t work on Galaxy Tab P1000.

Enable Screenshot on Power Menu button

On CyanogenMod 10.2 which is based-on Android 4.3, take screenshot is much easier by pressing and holding the Power button. You need to enable it.


Go to ‘Settings > Buttons > Power menu‘ then enable the Screenshot feature.

Now go to the screen that you would like to take screenshot, press and hold the Power button. See the demo video below!

  1. Hey, thanks alot for the tip. Is there a way to avoid getting the power options menu by capturing the screen by pressing “power+home” or something, instead?


  2. Beauty! I wasn’t so sure about this ROM when I first installed it, but as I learn more and more about it, I’m quickly becoming a fan.
