You recently played a VR game and wanted to take a screenshot of something, but didn’t know how to do it?
Capturing a screen shot in VR is almost as easy as playing a regular game on a PC, smartphone or console. The trick is simply to know the specific trigger or menu to use.
How to take a screenshot on Oculus Quest or Oculus Go
To take a screenshot on Oculus Quest or Oculus Go, first press the Oculus button (on the right touch controller or at the bottom of the Go controller) to open the menu.
In the menu, go to the sharing section and click the Take Snapshot button. You will see a red dot appear. After 3 seconds, it will disappear and a characteristic sound will indicate that a screenshot has been taken.
You can transfer your screenshots to another medium by connecting the headset to the computer via USB. In addition, you can use the “share photos” button to share them on your Facebook page. You can also set privacy and check the “just me” box to use it as a wireless system for transferring captured images from one device to another.

To take a screenshot on the PSVR, click the Share button on your controller. On the gamepad, it is located in the upper left corner next to the D-Pad. On motion controllers, it is located on the left side of the controller marked in the SELECT manual.
A menu will appear that allows you to share your screenshot with your friends on PlayStation, Facebook or Twitter.
