How do I take screen shots with a Moto X, first gen? I have pressed volume and power button until I hear a sound and then gone to the gallery to try to find the screen shot. I cannot find it anywhere (including in the albums.)
Pressing the volume and power-down keys simultaneously can take a few tries. If the power-off or volume control appears you know you didn’t get it just right. When you connect your Moto X to your PC and browse the folders you should find your screenshots in the Pictures folder.
In addition to hearing the ‘shutter sound’ the Gallery App posts a Notification (pull down shade from the top)

[ Touch to view your screenshot]
You may want to Uninstall/Update the App incase it is corrupted … it would be Motorola Gallery (Motorola Mobility LLC) … uninstall just takes you back to the base level and does not remove the app or loose any pictures you may have (just confirmed on my Moto X 1st Gen)
In addition once you hear the click you should momentarily see the shot taken.
