Take a screenshot on a Kindle Paperwhite


That image is from my fancy new Kindle Paperwhite (yes, that’s an affiliate link). How did I take it? It is pretty simple:

  1. Tap the upper right corner of the screen and the lower left corner at the same time.
  2. The screen flashes.
  3. The image is saved at the root of your Kindle Paperwhite.
  4. Plug your Kindle into your computer and you’ll see the images. Drag ’em on your computer and there you go.
  5. I tweeted this earlier (and was mentioned on Mac OS X Hints causing a bit of a stir) but I figured I’d post it here.

    I did try this trick on a Kindle Touch, and it didn’t seem to work.
