When you completed the steps below screenshot capability wil= l be enabled on your device. However, Android will automatically disable it= after every reboot / reset, so you will need to enable the screenshot capa= bility after every reboot. We cannot prevent the disabling of the functiona= lity after every reboot / reset, it is how Android is designed, apologies f= or that. Your device will NOT be rooted by using this, after a simple reboo= t everything will be the same as before again.
You will need to enable "Debug Mode" under the Set= tings/Applications/Development settings folder on your device. Go to Settin= gs > Applications > Development > USB debugging. Depending on your= device you might find the USB Debugging on some other location in the sett= ings page. If you are running Android 4.2 or higher you need to go to Setti= ngs > About phone > click multiple times on the build number option t= ill a popup says that developer mode has been enabled. After that follow th= e same steps at the beginning of this step.
Download and install the USB drivers for your Android device= on your computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) if you haven't installed them= yet.

The USB drivers for your phone can be found on the manufacturers websit= e from your Android device.
