With this information in mind, here are instructions on how to take a screenshot in Owl, organised by device and operating system:

  2. Press and hold the Power button on the right side and click the Home button at the same time (If you are using an iPhone XS, XS Max or iPhone XR, these don't have a Home button, so you'll have to use the Side button to take a screenshot instead).
  3. On newer versions of iOS, the screenshot will appear in the bottom left of your screen. If you need to remove client-identifying information from this screenshot, tap the photo now and you'll be able to use photo editing tools to cover up parts of the screenshot.
  4. The screenshot will be saved to the photo gallery on your phone.


  1. Open Owl and go to the exact screen you want to capture.
  2. Press the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time, hold them for a second, and your phone will take a screenshot.


There are quite a lot of different ways to capture screenshots in Microsoft Windows. Here's a few methods:

Method 1 - The Snipping Tool:

If you search your computer for "Snipping Tool", users of Windows 7 and up should be able to find this built-in application on Windows. This application saves screenshots directly to your computer, and allows you to take screenshots of part of your screen instead of the whole page. Later versions of this application also allow you to edit the screenshot before saving it to your computer, which you may find helpful if you need to hide Client-identifying information.

Method 2 - Print Screen:

Press the “PrtScn” key. A screenshot of your display is now copied to the clipboard. Open an image editor like Paint, word processor, or paste this image into your email to us directly. Choose Edit > Paste, or press CTRL+V, to paste the screenshot wherever you like. If you pasted it into an image editor of some kind, you can then Save the screenshot to your computer, and then attach it to your email to us.
