    Just for the fun of it, I created a Live CD of Android 6.0 64-bit.
    Running it on my Win 10 Home 64-bit laptop without installing it.

    A couple of questions :

    1. I also created a Live CD of Android 6.0 x86. It would not run on the same 64-bit laptop until I used the 64-bit Android 6.0 Live CD. Why ?

    I have another 64-bit laptop which I have Win 10 Pro 32-bit installed without any problem.

    2. How do I take screenshot while in android 6.0 ?
    Print Screen does not work while in 6.0.

    I can maybe help with this question; or rather, provide some information. Screenshots on Android are usually done by a button press combination, such as Home/Power or Home/Volume down or Power/Volume down. This varies somewhat depending on the device manufacturer. I don't know if the OS itself has a screenshot trigger.

    Thank you.

    You have overlooked one major point.
    I am not running 6.0 on a tablet.
    I am running it on a laptop.

    Nope I was all over it. I was responding based on running Android on a PC. Sorry, I did not very clearly state what I was thinking. Add this to my post and it will make sense:

    Screenshots on Android are done by a hardware button press combination. Therefore, there may not be a way to take a screenshot when running Android on a PC because the relevant hardware buttons are not available. There might be an app that'll do it though.

    x86 Android'll probably work fine technologically since AMD64 is compatible with x86 unless 32-bit Android has some hidden surprises?
