Taking a screenshot on Oculus Quest 2
When you’re doing something epic on your new Oculus Quest 2 (or original Quest), it’s incredibly easy to take a screenshot to share with friends. This is how you take a screenshot in your VR headset.
Taking a screenshot on your Oculus Quest 2 is almost as easy as taking a screenshot on a smartphone. Just hold down the Oculus button (which looks like an oval icon) on the right Quest Touch controller, then press the trigger on either controller.
After the screenshot is taken, you will hear a screenshot sound (similar to a camera shutter) that you have probably heard on other devices. You will also receive a notification confirming that the screenshot has been taken.
If the first method doesn’t work for you, there is a second, more difficult, way to take a screenshot.
Start by opening the system menu by pressing the Oculus button on your right Touch controller. From there, select the “Share” tab in the lower taskbar.
Then select the “Take photo” button. You will see a small red dot appear that will blink for five seconds. Once the countdown is complete, a screenshot will be taken.
If you’re not sure how to see those screenshots, navigate to the main menu by pressing the Oculus button on your controller. Select the “Share” tab (as we did) to take a screenshot. Instead of selecting “Take Photo,” now choose “Show All.”
From here you can see all the screenshots you’ve taken.
If a screenshot is selected, you can then delete the image or share it with others.
