Greetings !!!!
Mi Fans

Today I will guideyou through the Scrolling Screenshot or Long Screenshot step by instructions.

Xiaomi the Name is enough to bring in all excitement
We all knowthat xiaomi always believe in some wonderful things going to happen. Unique featuresis one of them to their fans whenever they releases new updates and the samewas with MIUI 8 when we witnessed a whole bunch of new features and as you allknow that there are lot of beneficial features in MIUI 8 but One of the mosteye catching features for me was Scrolling Screenshot or Longs screenshot.


In previous MIUI versions when we capture a web page or content , it was typically limited to the viewable screen size. Now in MIUI 8 it is easy and possible for us to capture an entire page with long screenshot feature.
Scrolling screenshots feature is also known as long screenshots. With this unique feature,you can capture an entire scrolling page/content no matter how long it is.

How to take screenshot

Did you know that there are 4 methods to take a screenshot in MIUI 8? If you are still new to Xioami Devices,do not worry this thread will help you how to use this feature with ease.

Method 1: Volume Down + Menu Key Button

This method is the simplest one.
Alternately, you can use Volume Down + Power Button to take a screenshot

Method 2: Pull down Status Bar and Tap on the "Screenshot" Toggle

Method 3: Enable Quick Ball and Select Screenshot in its Shortcut Menu

Quick Ball,screenshot is one of the default menu in it

Method 4: Three Fingers Swipe Down to Screenshot
This is MIUI 8 Latest Feature, you can enable it in Setting > Additional Settings> Screenshot > Slide three fingers to take a screenshot.

Just swipe 3 fingers at any screen to activate screenshot capturing.
