Power Saving Mode
This feature lets your phone from the battery drain. When this mode is on most Android Phones will not be able to take screenshots.
Turn off Incognito Mode
If you are trying to take a screenshot in Chrome Incognito Mode then you won’t be able to do it because Google has blocked the ability to capture the screenshot in incognito mode. So leave the Incognito Mode and open the normal mode to take the screenshot.
Sometimes a quick restart can solve many problems. So if you are unable to take the screenshot restart your device.
Check Internal Storage
Many times full storage of the device will also result in not being able to take screenshots. To check storage go to Settings > Storage > General Management > Storage. Free up some space and then try to take a screenshot.
