How to Take Screenshots on the Kindle Paperwhite

By

Untitled-1

The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite has the unique ability to take screenshots directly on the e-reader. Many devices do not have this feature and our video demonstrates everything you need to do to get started.

Taking screenshots is fairly easy. You need to hold down on on the top left and button right, or the top right and bottom left. It normally takes a few seconds and then you will see a full page refresh. When this occurs, a screenshot has now taken place. The pictures are stored in the root folder of your Kindle Paperwhite. You can plug your e-reader into your PC via the USB cable and get access to any of the pictures you took.

    Oops, you wrote ” hold down on both the top left and top right hand corner”, but meant to write “bottom” in place of one of those “top”s!

    Michael K: Are you going to fix your text just above the video, so that it corresponds with what you describe in the video? Again, here’s what you’ve written: “Taking screenshots is fairly easy. You need to hold down on both the top left and top right hand corner, or vice versa. When you take screenshots, they appear in the root folder when your plug your Kindle via USB into your PC.”
