After you've taken a screenshot, it will be saved in one of your Motorola smartphone's image folders. You can view the screenshot from there.

1. Open your Motorola smartphone's camera app.

2. Open the camera's photo gallery.

3. If you don't see a thumbnail for the screenshot right away, look for a folder titled "Screenshots." Where the screenshots are saved may vary from smartphone to smartphone.
