Windows Phone Screen shot : All version

Taking screenshots in Windows Phone used to be really complicated, impossible almost, and for years people to whom it mattered have been trying to get Windows to respond to the need for something more efficient.

Windows 8 screenshot

With Windows Phone 8, Windows answered the call, and, at last, there is an easy and efficient way to take, save, download to other documents and copy screenshots of all your other apps, including games.

For the upgrades, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 the procedure changed a bit, probably for the better.

Check which version you have: Phone 8 or 8.1 or 10 ( Phone 7.5 or 7.8 does not have this capability ) as follows: Tap "Settings" → "About" → "More info". The "Software" entry will display the version.
