    Power off and volume down at the same time.

    At first I wasnt doing it right but once you get the hang of it. It is so convenient.

    Use index on volume up
    use middle on power

    Pressing simultaneously is so easy now.

    Nice one MS

    That's a great tip, and it really is easier! I can take a screenshot with one hand now, thanks to your advice. The old method in WP8 required two hands.

    I wish I could do this, but it's not that convenient on a 1520 :(
    First time I was sad that I had a 1520 lol

    I had the same problem earlier - not sure what fixed it, but I did delete a load of photos from the sdcard where I tell it to store pictures etc

    Just started working again for me

    The reason for change is to support new phones without physical Windows Key. They had to come up with a new combination with the remaining physical keys.

    The change actually made it super convenient on my Ativ S... Volume rocker upper left side, power button upper right side. With either hand I just tighten my grip and voila!

    Still an annoying change They could of still had both combinations trigger a screenshot. It's not like Start+Power is being used by anything else other than to tell us they changed it.

    If I was left handed, or the volume & power buttons were on the left side of the screen when looking at it straight on, then the new combo would have been great - but Im right handed, and the button are on the right side of the screen so only my palm/thumb is touching them, so this change makes it no easier to take a screenshot than the old combo

    Nothing lost, nothing gained, just changed
