Take Screenshots on Almost Any Kindle Device  September 19, 2015 – 09:28 am
Kindle Touch Disables 3G Web

You might want to share a picture of a book you're reading or snap a shot of a settings page so you can help a friend with their device. Whatever your reason, you can take screenshots on most Kindle devices. Here's how to do it.

The video above from ebook site Goodereader shows how to take a screenshot on the Kindle Paperwhite. All you have to do is touch two opposing corners on the screen at the same time. You'll see a brief flash to let you know the screenshot has been taken. Screenshots are stored in the root folder of the device, so you'll need to connect it to a computer via USB to get your pics.

You can also take screenshots on most other Kindle devices (and devices that run the Kindle app). Here's the rundown:

  • Kindle (formerly known as the Kindle Touch). Press and hold the Home button and then tap anywhere on your screen. As with the Paperwhite, you'll need to connect to a computer to retrieve the screenshot.
  • Kindle Keyboard (also Kindle 3 and DX). Press Alt-Shift-G on the keyboard. Pics are stored in the Documents folder. Again, connect to a computer to get to them.
  • Kindle 4. Press the Home and Keyboard buttons at the same time, then release. Screenshots are saved in the Documents folder. (Thanks to joandrade for testing this one!)
  • Kindle Fire 2 and Kindle Fire HD (that have a volume button). Press and hold the volume down and power button at the same time. Open your Photos app to access the pics.
  • Older Kindle Fires (without volume buttons). Unfortunately, these are a lot harder to take screenshots on. You actually have to connect your Fire to a computer with the Kindle SDK installed and take a screenshot through the development environment. Here are Amazon's instructions.
  • Kindle App (various platforms). The Kindle app doesn't have a built-in screenshot function, so you'll have to take a screenshot with the tools available to the platform itself. Here's how to take screenshots on your computer, on your Android device, and on your iOS device.
