How To Take A Screenshot On A Kindle Fire Device

Fire Tablets and Fire Phone

To take screenshots on Fire Phone and Fire tablets (3rd and 4th Gen), you can use the physical buttons on the device.

Before taking a screenshot, locate the Volume Down button and the Power button.

  1. With the device powered on, press and hold down the Volume Down button and Power button together for one second. The screen will flash briefly and a smaller image of the screen will appear in the center of the screen to indicate a successful screenshot. If the volume is turned up, you'll hear a shutter sound just before the screen flashes.
  2. Release the buttons.
  3. Using a USB cable, connect the tablet to your computer.
  4. On Windows: Navigate to Internal Storage > Pictures > Screenshotson the device. The screenshots are saved with filenames that include the year, month, day, hour, minute, and second in the format:Screenshot_yyyy-mm-dd-hh-mm-ss.png. On Mac OS X: Install a free app, Android File Transfer(AFT), to complete a USB transfer. Visitandroid.com/filetransfer and follow the onscreen instructions. After installation, the AFT application starts automatically when you plug in your Fire device. In the AFT window, navigate to Pictures > Screenshots. The screenshots are saved with filenames that include the year, month, day, hour, minute, and second in the format: Screenshot_yyyy-mm-dd-hh-mm-ss.png as shown below:
