    I read that I can take screen shots of my N7 by holding down the on/off button and volume button at the same time, but nothing happens when I do this.

    Is there any secret, or tips, for how to take a screen shot?


    Thanks, David

    You are right. It does have a screen shot feature. I did a quick search and came up with this URL:

    How to take a screenshot on the Nexus 7 | How To - CNET

    A snap shot is taken when you hold just the 'down' volume button and the power button at the same time. Watch the video for a demonstration.

    It works.

    V/r,

    It takes a few tries. I find pressing the LOCK just before the VOL DOWN for best results. If you hit VOL DOWN first, you will get the VOL slider in your shot.
