FRIENDS WITH WINDOWS PHONES often ask how to take a screenshot with their handsets. I tell them to touch the the Start icon and the power button at the same time. If they're co-ordinated, they'll hear the sound of the shot being snapped. If they're not, the Windows Phone spoken search will start running.
The power button is metal on the side of the phone. the Start icon is the Windows flag on the middle button of the phone's screen.
Screenshot appear in the Screenshots folder in the Photos hub on the handset. I've discovered they're handy ways of capturing the moment--like information on screen during a fast-flowing conversation on Twitter. Or a comment below a blog post. Or a stream of information inside a discussion in a LinkedIn group. I've used screenshots as key items in Slideshare presentations that feature in my creative multimedia lectures such as shots from favourite watering holes like Pinboard in the screenshot. With a little practise, I'll improve my screenshots of streaming videos. You can learn a lot by analysing key frames.
