You don't need an application to create screenshots. Holding down the power button and the volume down button at the same time for a few seconds until the screen flashes is what creates the screenshot.

The DROID 2 is a really old phone.  Are you sure that is the model name of the phone you have?

Ann154 is correct if your are running Android 5.1. Holding down the power button and the volume down button at the same time for a few seconds until the screen flashes is what creates the screenshot. If you are running Marshmallow 6.0 its a whole new ball game. Follow the instruction in the link below.

Others have nailed it already. There is one other option to create a screen shot that is even easier depending on if your looking to share the screen shot. On Android Marshamallow you simple do the following:

Long press the home button. this pulls up the Google Now menu.. then tap on the share icon... you can then share the screen shot via SMS, email, etc.

I think that is the Google on Tap option where you see the share option. I turned that part of Google Now off since it wasn't as functional as I thought.

Just out of curiosity - can you still take a screenshot with the power/volume down combo in Marshmallow?  The Google on Tap method says it doesn't allow you to save the screenshot; quite often I save the screenshot to edit before sharing, and not all the ways I "share" are listed (such as posting to this forum, using in training docs, among others).

Does Marshmallow give you the option to take and save a screenshot. as well as the quick share?

The power button and the volume down button still works in Marshmallow.
