Ever want to share what’s on your PlayBook screen with friends, but they’re not there to see it?  Contrary to a popular school of thought, you don’t need an app for that.  The PlayBook can take screenshots natively from any screen with just the touch two buttons.

Simply press the volume up and volume down keys simultaneously and the screenshot is taken!

You should hear a “snapshot” sound effect if the sound is turned up on your PlayBook.  I took a picture of a Scroodle drawing I made.

The screenshot is saved to the “Pictures” folder, viewable in the Pictures app.  You can then share it in any one of the many wonderful ways the internet allows.

That’s it.  It’s that simple!
