Step 1: Device Buttons [Easy and Recommended]

This is the most commonly and widely used by most of the Android device users. This is a quite traditional way and a full-proof method to take a screenshot on any of the Android devices easily. Now, you may ask why the full-proof method… That’s only because, during the unresponsiveness of your device screen, the physical buttons always come in handy whether it may be power on/off or taking a screenshot.

  • Go to the desired page or place on your Mi 9 phone which you want to capture.
  • Press and hold the Volume Down and Power button altogether for a few seconds and it’ll capture a screenshot of that whole screen easily.
  • Now, the preview image of your screenshot will appear at the top corner of your device screen for a few seconds. That means you’ve successfully taken a screenshot. [By tapping on that preview, you will open the screenshot and can edit/delete/share simply, no need to go to the gallery app]

Step 2: Screenshot Shortcut

Thanks to the Xiaomi for offering the Screenshot Shortcut option in the Notification Panel Quick Settings toggle. This really helps the users most of the time when users are quite busy or can’t press the hardware buttons by two hands (mostly). This shortcut will definitely save time and effort without any lag or worry.

  • Open the Quick Settings menu toggle from the notification panel.
  • Tap on the Screenshot icon. [This will take a screenshot instantly]
  • A preview image of your screenshot will appear at the top corner of the display for a few seconds. As usual, you can open the screenshot directly from the preview and can edit/delete/share instantly.

That’s it. Now, you can simply use any of them at any time on your Xiaomi Mi 9 phone to take a screenshot quickly.
