  • Most android phones are coming with a pre-installed file manager apps. If your don’t find one on your phone, download any file management app from the play store (example : ES File Explorer). You can download ES file explorer from Google Play store.

3. Fix Issue From Settings
Just follow the below path
Setting >>> Privacy and security >>> Passcode lock >>> Allow capture screen
Now try taking screenshots

4. Installing Third-Party Apps
I will like to point out that some of the apps (for example banking apps), don’t let you capture the screenshot while you have the app opened as the active application. If that is the issue you are facing, we suggest you to have to install a third party screenshot app like “Screenshot ultimate” to make it work. Also this app can be used to take screenshots automatically, without the manual process. Download Sreenshot Ultimate here from Playstore

5. Fix Issue By Formatting Your Phone
This is like the best alternative if the four methods i have highlighted above failed. So factory reset seems to be the only option left, make sure to back up all the data on your phone and factory reset your device.
