How to Take Screenshot on Playbook

Note: While your Playbook is connected to a RIM’s smartphone through Blackberry Bridge app meanwhile screen capture option does not work on your tablet, so to make it working first you have to disconnect your tablet from Bridge, to do that:

  • Tap on “Settings” icon on status bar of your Playbook
  • In left panel on Settings screen, tap Blackberry Bridge and in right pane tap on Disconnect button


Now, open the screen which you want to capture, except Blackberry Bridge apps (Messages, Calendar, Notes, Tasks, etc) and press and hold Volume UP and Volume Down buttons simultaneously on your PlayBook, immediately you will hear camera shutter sound and screenshot will save in Pictures.


To see captured screenshot, open Camera Pictures folder and there you will find the saved screenshot
