How to Take Screenshots in Sailfish OS 2.0 Devices

We are planning more articles around Sailfish OS. If you have some other question, feel free to drop it down in comments or the discussion forums.
Sailfish OS is silently growing by partnering with more and more OEMs/Brands who put Saifish OS on their smartphones. New features are regularly implemented into Sailfish as per the voting. An important new addition is the ability to take screenshots without third-party apps.
