is there an easier way to take a screenshot  than pressing the  power and volume down  button together?

Is there a way to change it to just a long of one other button? or via a quick settings icon?

at the moment it is easier to make a video from the screen than a single screenshot ( there is a quick settings button for making a video)

Swipe across the screen with the side of your hand, as if it was a window wiper

HI @Flintstone The palm to swipe feature is available on many Samsung Devices. it s accessible via Settings-Advanced Features- Motions and Gestures-Palm Swipe to Capture (ensure that is toggled on)   Other  options are  to use Voice Assistants (Bixby or Google Voice) or to to set it up in Tasks via the Edge Panel.

See further information here https://www.digitalcitizen.life/take-screenshots-android/ 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

thanks doing it via the edge panel looks the best option although you should not use the rectangle or the oval option but swiping right again and use the screenshot button. (but it is a bit unclear how to save it, will have a look at the screen master app mentioned looks nice.
