II. Taking Screenshot Using the Default Method
The most common way to capture any Android running device is by using its default screenshot method. It also works for Nexus 10 which is based on Android OS. To screenshot on Nexus 10, all you need to do is to press and hold the “Power” + “Volume down” buttons simultaneously. Release the buttons when you hear a shutter sound, or notice the flash around the edges of the screen. This way works just fine, yet its function is just limited to taking screenshot. No annotating and sharing functions are included.
III. Using Other Third-Party Apps
Another way to capture Nexus 10 screenshot is by using a third-party application named Screenshot. Upon using this program, users can trigger screenshot function with 2 modes. First one is by touching the shot icon on the screen and the second one is by pressing Android default key combinations. When a screenshot is taken, a preview will be shown, and users can decide whether to keep the file or discard it. Cropping, adding annotations and mosaic effect can also be done before saving the file. However, some of its features can only be used on rooted devices.
The next app that can be used to screenshot Nexus 10 is none other than Capture Screenshot. This mobile app is available at Play Store for free. The key features of this tool include different trigger methods, a built-in image editor, image filters, and customizable Themes.

But for a more satisfying way, it is advisable to use Apowersoft Screenshot. Because it doesn’t require rooting your tablet and provides other features like image editing, uploading
