Have you ever wanted to take an iPad screenshot so that you can brag to a friend about what level you made it to in Angry Birds HD or how cool your city looks in SimCity DLX? It is actually quite easy to take an iPad screenshot. Simply hold down the iPad home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time. You will see a flash on your screen signalling the iPad's screen was captured. Not sure where these buttons are located? Refer to the diagram above for the locations.

Where does the iPad screenshot go?

Once you've captured the screen, you can find the image within the Photos app. You can email the screenshot to one of your friends or even tweet it. Want a quick way to get it to your computer? Simply email it to yourself.
