How to Enable Three-Finger Gesture to Take Screenshot on Huawei

I enjoy Huawei’s EMui skin very much! One of my favorite features in this UI is gestures. In particular, it is very handy to take a screenshots using three-finger gesture instead of pressing and holding some key combination.

And when your phone has 6-inch screen it is especially important. In this guide I will show how to enable the feature on Huawei phones like P20/Pro/Lite, Mate 20/Pro/Lite, Nova 3/3i, Honor View series, etc.

How to Enable Three Finger Screenshot on Huawei

  • Open the Settings app on your Huawei device: Settings Huawei EMUI 8.2
  • Scroll down and tap on Smart Assistance:Huawei Settings Smart assistance
  • Select Motion ControlHuawei Motion Control EMui Settings
  • Tap on Three Finger ScreenshotThree-finger screenshot Huawei
  • Toggle it on: Enable three-finger screenshot on Huawei EMui 8.2

Method 2 – Search in Settings

  • Open the Settings app
  • Swipe down for the search to appear at the top of the screen
  • Type thr in the search field.
  • Tap on Three-Finger Screenshot in the results: search for three-finger screenshot in settings Huawei
  • Enable the feature.

In some cases you may have to use the traditional method of taking screenshots – Power + Volume down. The three-finger gesture may not work if you try to capture such things as open pop-up menu (it will just disappear).

That’s it! Was this helpful? Which method of capturing the screen do you prefer on your Huawei device? Tell us in the comments!
