Even though taking a screenshot is a relatively basic task, we shouldn’t assume that everyone knows how to do it. Fortunately, on HTC’s latest smartphone, the U11, the process is extremely straightforward.

How do I take a screenshot on the HTC U11?

  1. Open the page you want to take a screenshot of.
  2. Simultaneously press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons.

Your handset should then chime and vibrate, indicating that it’s captured a screenshot. To open it, swipe down from the notification panel and tap the Screenshot Captured alert.

Android Pay has come a long way since its introduction back in 2015. It’s currently available in seventeen countries, including Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, and supports more than three hundred banks and credit unions — so there’s never been a better time to start using the mobile payment platform.

What’s Android Pay?

For those unaware, Android Pay is a digital wallet developed by Google to power in-app and tap-to-pay purchases. It uses NFC to transmit card information, giving customers the facility to use their smartphone or smartwatch to pay for goods in any brick-and-mortar store that accepts contactless payment.

How do I set up Android Pay?

  1. If it’s not already installed on your smartphone, download the Android Pay application from the Play Storethen open it.
  2. Press Get Started.
  3. A list of cards associated with your Google account will appear. Select the ones you want to use. If you don’t want to use any of the recommended cards, tap Add Another Card.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to create an electronic copy of your card. You’ll have the option to scan your card. Alternatively, you can manually punch in the long number, expiry date and security code.

To help you spread LGBT light and love this month, Facebook has introduced a new reaction: a rainbow Pride flag. It won’t show up automatically, though. You will, instead, need to activate it manually by liking the official LGBTQ@Facebook page. That’s all there is to it.

How do I enable the Pride reaction on my Facebook account?

  1. Open up the Facebook application.
  2. Search for LGBTQ@Facebook.
  3. Like the page when it loads.
  4. Wait for around five minutes, then spread love and cheer using the Pride reaction.
