As most of you already know, (and for those who are first-time Lumia smartphone owners), the Lumia 950 features a rear-facing PureView camera with a 20-megapixel advanced BSI sensor, F1.9 Zeiss optics, triple-LED natural flash, 5th-gen optical image stabilization, ISO 12800, 4K video, and a 5-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera.

But what about those times you want to show off what’s on your screen? The Lumia 950 features Microsoft’s latest mobile offering (Windows 10 Mobile) and there may be times where you want to share your organized Start screen. Here’s how you can take a screenshot on the Lumia 950 and 950 XL:

  • Press the volume up key and the power key at the same time. You will hear a sound and the screen will flash for a quick second.
  • To view your screenshots you’ve taken, head over to the Photos app, tap on Albums, and look in the Screenshots folder.
