Open the page/window/app you would like capture then go to top navigation/settings menu in mobile, you would see an option called “screen shot” just tap on it, on successful screen shot capture you will get notification.

Then another window opens up by showing the present captured screenshot and few options below it choose “scroll” from that menu it enable you scroll through the window, just hold the image and scroll down image until you required and tap “Done” once you reached desired end point. In few seconds the large scrolling screenshot will be created for you.
