How to take screenshot of Android device screen

I just bought a Hipstreet Flare Android tablet $100.
I needed to make some screenshots to explain how to root the device.
Explained HERE.

Here's the results of my research.------>


Apparently some Android devices will create a screenshot if
Volume down key and Power off key are pressed simultaneously,
but not mine.

I read the forums and came up with this solution.

I'm not sure if the device needs to be rooted first or not????
I had just done a rooting of the device in my case.

java sfs must be running - check by typing java in terminal
You can get a java SFS HERE.

Connect USB sync cable
Click in bottom right corner of android device
See message 'USB debugging connected'




Steps:
1) download android-sdk_r20.0.3-linux.tgz and decompress folder android-sdk-linux
in a convenient location


2) go to folder containing application 'ddms' which in my case was
/mnt/home/android-sdk-linux/tools/



and launch terminal from there (a right-click option)

3)Next step ---> type ./ddms to launch app 'ddms'


4)You will now have a window titled 'Dalvik Debug Monitor'

You must select a line(any line) in window - see image
I selected 'system_process'




5) Go under menu heading Device > Screenshot

6) Click 'Save' to save the screenshot to your hard drive

I also discovered that there is a crude file manager also available with
the 'ddms' application.

With the Dalvik Debug Monitor open

go to Device > File Explorer

and this window will open (see image)



It allows copying and deletion.
