New media slider (Android 11) vs screenshot

Hi,

It seems I'm the first (& only) one to have this problem?

I'm trying to take a screenshot with the ol' 'volume up'- + 'power'-buttons-combo but ever since the update to Android 11 (yesterday) it will show the (new and so not-wanted (because ugly & annoying)) media slider in the picture (as soon as I hit the volume-button).

How to avoid this?

Kind regards,
Nanette

Sounds like you are accidentally getting the volume up instead of volume down. To take a screen shot, press power key and volume down.

Thanks @LongHiker !

It's worth mentioning that you only shortly press those buttons because if you hold them too long the phone will want to restart.

Furthermore, I don't like that áfter you take the screenshot, options appear at the bottom of the screen. Can I turn that off somewhere?

Try this:

  1. Open settings
  2. Click on Advanced features
  3. Click on Screenshots and screen recorder
  4. Turn off Screenshot toolbar
