    Default Screenshot with Playbook

    Hi all,
    Just found this out, and seems to be fairly little documented feature. Maybe you don't all know it.
    If you press up and down volume buttons simultaneously then PlayBook will take a screen shot of current screen and save it in Photos folder.
    Let me know if useful!

    EDIT: Ok, So I found out about this, got a bit excited, and posted without checking what else had been written on the matter. I feel a little dumb now, so let's say no more about it, eh?

    Chris.

    It's probably one of the better known features but I like the enthusiasm.

    Heh-heh... I've see a few posts where people have been advised to do a hard-reset, and then post complaining that the hard-reset didn't work, but they've got a bunch of screenshots on the PB. (You've got to hold the power button before you press V-,V+ to do a H-R).

    Another "easy if you knew it" tip is that holding the pause button (between V-,V+) will mute/unmute the sound in a one-step operation.

    It's a bit of a shameless plug, because I contributed to the thread , but the stickied post below is probably worth a read. It's jam-packed with useful hints and tips...
