How to take a screenshot on the Moto G (2014)
The Moto G (2014) is set up like most Android devices when it comes to taking a screenshot (meaning this same process will work on the majority of other Android phones as well).
First you need to navigate to the screen you want to capture. Then, just press and hold the Power and Voume Down buttons until the screen flashes. This means your screen has been captured.
The image will now appear in a folder called Screenshots in your gallery app. If you don't already have the folder it will be created the first time you take a screenshot. You can also access your screenshot (and share it) straight from the notifications shade/pull-down window. You'll see a little photo icon in your status bar.
Remember, you can always edit out the parts you don't want to share too, so you can crop the screenshot with a picture editing app, blur out messages or phone numbers or add arrows and comments as well. Happy screenshoting.
