Home button is located at the central bottom place on the iPad, just under the glass screen. Wakeup/sleep button is at the top of the iPad, an oval shape button. To take a screenshot in an iPad, these two buttons play the role.

Whenever you want to take a screenshot in an iPad, press the Home and Wakeup/sleep button simultaneously, you will hear a light shutter image flickr sound (if the speaker is on), and the screenshot will be taken.

Don’t know where the iPad screenshot went? Just go to the native ‘Photos’ app you will find the screenshot in the Camera Roll, or there could be a separate screenshots folder too.
