Hi rgb192.

What error exactly are you getting?

Have you tried just asking Bixby to take a screenshot with a voice command as a workaround?

It's the method I usually use with my Samsung SM-G965F and hasn't failed yet so far.

Regards, Andrew


bixby doesnt work for me but may be a solution

just try holding the home button down until the Google Assistant comes up.  Then there's the option to "share screenshot"
