Taking screenshots on a Nokia Lumia 820 (and other Windows Phone 8 handsets)

A couple of months ago, I moved away from my Android phone and thought I’d give one of the underdogs a try. I bought myself a Nokia Lumia 820 and so far the results are brilliant. I’m not going to go into an in-depth discussion about the pros and cons of the OS, but suffice to say, I like it.

Having left my blog dormant for a while, I noticed my old blog on taking screenshots on my old HTC Desire S was still getting a fair number of views, so I thought I’d follow it up with a similar post for my Lumia.

This will definitely work on a Lumia 820, although I’m led to believe that this will work on all Windows Phone 8 handsets.

To do the screenshot, hold the lock button on the side of the phone and press the Windows logo button at the bottom of the screen. The screenshot can then be found in the gallery, under screenshots.

Once again, as proof of being able to do this, I’ve added a screenshot from my phone below:
