the Samsung galaxy s20, S20 +, and S20 Ultra all display a toolbar at the bottom of the pin up immediately after taking a screenshot. The bar allows you to quickly edit, share and capture scrolling screenshots. Disabling the feature is easy if you don’t like the pop-up interface.

Start by opening the phone settings. The easiest way to access the menu is to swipe down from the top of the screen and display the notification panel. Now tap the Gear icon next to the power button.

You can also swipe up from the Home screen to open the Galaxy S20 application drawer. From there, you can use the search bar or switch between pages to locate the “Settings” application.

Scroll down and tap on the “Advanced Features” option.

Find the “Screenshots and screen recorder” menu, then select it.

Finally, tap the toggle next to “Screen capture toolbar” to turn off the feature. The item is grayed out when disabled.

While you are in the Screenshots menu, you can also change the format of the image. By default, the screenshot is saved in JPG format. Tap the “Screen Format” item to then select “PNG” from the pop-up menu to make the change. Keep in mind that this will result large file sizes.
