An essential functionality today in a mobile phone or tablet is the possibility of taking screenshots, that is to say to record in an image what appears on the screen at that precise moment on your Huawei P20.
There are applications that can perform this functionality, but fortunately you do not need to install any additional app as it is included in the Android 8.1 (Oreo) operating system.
When you make a screenshot, you can send that WhatsApp conversation, Tinder, Instagram story, Facebook photo or video frame in the memory of your Huawei device.

If you want to make a screenshot to your Huawei P20 you have to follow these simple steps:
1- First step:
Go to the screen you want to capture the screen.
2- Second step:
Press simultaneously the power key and the volume key down. If you want to capture a video the procedure is the same but pressing the power key and the volume key up. In EMUI (customization of Huawei to the Android operating system) drag three fingers from the top of the screen down to perform the screenshot.
3- Third step:
The captured image is automatically saved in the gallery of your mobile/cell phone Huawei EML-L09, EML-L29.
4- Fourth step:

If what you want is to capture a complete web page in your Huawei P20 first of all you should know that this method is not available natively on Android for the moment however Huawei has incorporated it into its EMUI customization layer.
To make a scroll screenshot on a web page, a WhatsApp conversation or any other application from your Huawei P20, take the screenshot with the method indicated above, when taking the screenshot the capture and the screen capture menu will appear for a few seconds, before it disappears, click on "Scrollshot" and wait while scrolling on the screen capturing all the content, when you want to cut the screenshot, click on the screen to stop since if the web page or the application has a very long or infinite scroll it can generate an too large image and block the system.
Once the capture is made, it will be saved in the P20 image gallery and you can edit and share it on social networks.
