How to create a screenshot?

Sometimes a picture says more than 1000 words. For special problems, our support team sometimes asks you to send a screenshot. Here we have a brief guide on how to proceed.

Android

On Android, creating a screenshot is not uniform on all devices. On a lot of devices you have to hold down the "Silent"-button and the "On/Off"-button at the same time for 1-2 seconds. With other devices you have to hold down both the„Home“-button and the "On/Off"-button for 1-2 seconds.
The screen will flash and the whole screen will then be saved as a picture to the photo and album Gallery app.

  

iOS

To do a screenshot with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch please hold the "Standby"-button and right after press the" Home"-Button really quick. The screen will flash and the whole screen will be saved as a picture in your "photo" app.

  

Windows

To take a picture of the entire screen, press the "Print" button; on the top right of your keyboard. Now your whole screen will be captured by Windows and saved to your clipboard.
If you only want to copy the current window, hold down the "Alt"-button and press "print". This will only capture the current window and copy it to the clipboard.
To paste the image somewhere, hold down the "Strg"-key and press "V". Now your last saved picture in the clipboard will be inserted into your currently opened image or document

To create a screenshot, press the On/Off button at the same time as the louder key. If this does not work, try the On/Off button together with the Silent button.
