Smile How do I take screenshots with the Kindle Fire using a PC?

Hi!

Im using a Kindle Fire and need to take screenshots I know there isn't a built-in method and you have to get use some Android software. Im using a Windows 7 64bit PC.

I'm not a techie but can follow instructions and would like the most easy way possible preferably without rooting my Fire. The problem is I have followed two different 'easy' methods on the internet and none have worked for me, and the person writing the instructions have missed out important steps such as require Java.

I have installed Java SDK
I have installed Android SDK and supposedly the USB driver.
I have launched CMD and tried to run Dalvick Debug Monitor yet I get errors, because it cant see my Fire.

Please. any help would be mega appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the link. I watched that vid earlier, but it forgets to explain that you need to install java and android SDK. He has another vid about rooting your kindle fire, which i have followed but the software is not recognising the USB connection.

Cheers though!

I suggest following the instructions for rooting, e.g. How to Root the Amazon Kindle Fire. If you do root, there are screenshot apps (e.g. dropcap2) or use the USB debug mode.
