How to Take Screenshots on the Nook HD


The Barnes and Noble Nook HD has the ability to take screenshots directly on your e-reader. We have seen countless people try to take pictures of content right on the device, and often they do not look good. If you find yourself wanting to take a screenshot of anything happening on your device, our video tutorial will walk you through the entire setup.

Taking a screenshot on the Nook HD is fairly easy! All you have to do is hold your finger down on the N button and Volume Down at the same time. You will hear a sound effect of a picture being taken and the screenshot animation will play. All pictures are stored right on your e-reader, so you can simply connect it up to your PC via the USB cable and harvest your pictures.

    I prefer the Kindle Fire HD. The interface is great and it’s very easy to use. Check out its Amazon page( if you want to compare what they bring to the table.
