We all know that xiaomi always brings cool and unique features to their fans whenever they releases new updates and the same was with MIUI 8 when we witnessed a whole buch of new features and as you all know that there are lot of beneficial features in MIUI 8 but One of the most eye catching features for me was Scrolling Screenshot or Longs screenshot.

First let me introduce you what long Screenshot is.

In previous MIUI version when we capture a web page or any page typically, it was typically limited to what is viewable on the screen.
Now in MIUI 8 it is easy and possible for us to capture an entire page with long screenshot features.
Scrolling screenshots feature is also known as long screenshots. With this awesome feature, you can capture an entire scrolling page no matter how long it is.

First of all you need to learn How to take screenshot

This method is the simplest one.
Alternately, you can use Volume Down + Power Button to take a screenshot.

Method 2: Pull down Status Bar and Tap on the "Screenshot" Toggle

Method 4: Three Fingers Swipe Down to Screenshot
