How to take screenshot, printscreen on Xperia Tipo

In this article i will show you how to take screenshot on your Xperia Tipo smartphone. There are several ways to capture your phone screen, but the easiest way is using the android ICS screen capture feature. 

For Xperia Tipo (and Tipo dual off course), all you have to do is press and hold the power button and volume down (-) button simultaneously for about 2 seconds. If you do it correctly you will hear sound and screen will be captured.
The notification bar will show the screenshot result, you can view it using image gallery. The screenshot result is located in /sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots. When you plug the phone to your computer, you can see the Screenshots folder in internal storage, then look for Pictures folder, inside you will find the Screenshots folder. (Note : your phone must be in MTP mode).

And here is my Xperia Tipo screenshot, it's in PNG format, and the file name will be based on date time (year, month, date, hour, etc). For example this one called Screenshot_2012-09-28-22-32-56.PNG.
