Screenshot AT Status Whatsapp

I cannot so anymore Screenshots in Whatsapp of any Status posts of other people! How to solve?

Welcome to the Fairphone community.

Could you please give some information, about the phone you are using, what software is running on it. If you installed a SD card, how it is formatted. Did the problem occur out of the blue or after an update or something?


I have a fairphone 4 and i have the most recent Software of last Werk, but the problem existed already before. Yes i use a card but do not know how it is formatted

Then please check in the memory overview. Because using a SD card as internal memory often results in problems like the one you described.


What are Screenshots of status posts?

As far as I know, you can’t store the pictures someone posted in his WhatsApp status. So if you want to keep the messages/pictures, you have to take a screenshot.

Thanks for clarifying :wink:

With the simple gallery you can show hidden folder which includes a WA statuses folder and copy the pictures somewhere else to keep them

Still I guess when Screenshots are lost or whatever, the SD card might well be the reason.

I’m not sure, whether they are stored locally at all.

I see them in the Simple Gallery (Simple Mobile Tools) when enabling hidden folder and can copy them from there, tested it…
