How to Take a Screenshot on the OnePlus 6T is a post by Cory Gunther from Gotta Be Mobile.

This quick and simple guide explains how to take a screenshot on the OnePlus 6T. Additionally, we explain the different methods provided by OnePlus, like taking a scrolling screenshot. This very basic feature is available on every phone, but each company does things slightly different or adds extra controls to make it more useful.

With the OnePlus 6T, you actually have three different options, including taking an expanded screenshot of an entire email or text conversation.

How to Take a Screenshot on the OnePlus 6T

  1. Press and hold down the Power and Volume Down buttons at the same time, then let go
  2. You will see and hear the screenshot capture
  3. Now use the toolbar at the bottom of the screen to Share, Edit, or capture a Scrolling Screenshot

When you take a screenshot you’ll see it, hear it, and get a popup in the notification bar. You can then tap near the bottom left to share or access your screengrab.

Note: No your screenshot will NOT  have the notch in it.

After you take a screenshot you can click the pencil edit button near the bottom of the screen for a full set of tools to customize the image. This is perfect for sharing funny photos, circling text in an email or drawing on the image before you share it.

How to Take a Scrolling Screenshot on the OnePlus 6T

Additionally, OnePlus offers a neat “scrolling screenshot” or expanded screenshot function. This basically takes continuous screenshots until you stop it yourself. Allowing you to easily capture an entire webpage, a long text conversation, emails, and more. Basically, more than what’s on your screen at any given moment.

  1. Press and hold down the Power and Volume Down buttons at the same time, then let go
  2. You will see and hear the screenshot capture
  3. Tap on Scrolling Screenshot on the bottom right side of the toolbar (rectangle phone icon)
  4. The phone will automatically scroll down the page and continuously take screenshots
  5. Tap the screen to stop it

You have to tap on the screen to stop this feature. If you don’t, it will stop automatically at the end of the page, or once the device meets the maximum file size limit.

How to Use the OnePlus 6T Screenshot Gesture

And finally, just like Samsung, OnePlus offers a screenshot gesture that’s a lot easier than holding down a few buttons. First, you have to enable it in settings, and here’s how it all works.

  1. Head to Settings from the app tray, or by pulling down the notification bar and tapping the gear-shaped settings button
  2. Find and select Gestures
  3. Turn On the Three-finger Screenshot Gesture
  4. Now, just swipe down on the screen with three fingers to take a screenshot

This is our favorite method for taking a screenshot, as you can easily do it with one hand. Now, head to the Gallery on your phone and you’ll find a new Screenshots folder with all of your screenshots.
