Clever Clogs tip # 716
29 September 2022

Capture all content on a long page from a mobile phone *

My tips are normally written for Microsoft 365 desktop apps and Windows 10 users, but the other day I learned something I can do on my mobile phone that I feel is so helpful (and hubby agreed) that I decided to write a tip about it.

It's inspired by a post on LinkedIn by EA How To, showing how to capture an entire webpage on an iPhone. As I don't have an iPhone, I checked whether it would work on an Android. Yep!

Here's how (on my Samsung A21S):

  1. Press the side key and the volume down key simultaneously, as normal.
  2. Tap the first "button" on the toolbar at the bottom of the screen to scroll down and capture more content.
  3. Write or crop and share, as normal.

If you don't see the toolbar go to Settings > Advanced features > Screenshots > Show toolbar after capturing.

So far I've used this on web pages, PDFs, tickets, instructions on pages in user manuals ... love it! Thanks for the inspiration, Alicia (founder, EA How To).

  1. Wish Gmail also checks the spelling in the subject line!
  2. Has anyone changed this setting?


PS Like this? Let me know and I will share some more mobile phone tips. For example, I have set mine up to say who's calling - not just show it. So digging for my phone at the bottom of a huge bag has become a thing of the past now I know whether or not to pick it up.

* Unless stated otherwise this tip is written for Microsoft 365 desktop apps and Windows 10 users, but might also be useful in Office 2010, 2013 and 2016.
