    I’ve been using a Nokia Lumia 635 since 3 months and was able to take screenshots multiple times. But for the past week or so have been unable to take more than one picture. I have ample space on my SD card. It works only if I move the picture and delete the screenshot folder. But then only once. Please tell me what I can do?

      If you have updated firmware or software recently it must have changed.

      On your lumia 634 Press Volume Up button and Power button at the same time

    Been using the screenshot option for months now and now suddenly, I am not able to. I have updated the phone but still didn’t fix the problem. Any ideas why?

      The software update just changed the way you take screenshot. Try pressing START and POWER buttons at the same time or power button and volume up button at the same time.
