Screen recording is a great way to capture what’s happening on your screen, whether creating a tutorial, demonstrating a bug you’ve found, or just recording a funny moment. Windows 10 has a built-in screen recorder that you can use without downloading any extra software, and it’s really simple to use. Here’s how to screen record on Windows 10.
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to screen record on Windows 10:
1. Open the Screen Recorder tool
The first step is to open the Screen Recorder tool. You can do this by pressing the Windows key + G on your keyboard, which will bring up the Game bar. From there, click on the Capture button (which looks like a circle with a dot in the middle). That is the old way to access the Screen Recorder tool. Another way to open the Screen Recorder tool is by searching for it in the Start menu.
2. Configure your recording settings
Now that you’ve installed the right software, it’s time to configure your recording settings. To do this:
-Open the recording software.
-Click on “Settings” (or a similar option).
-Configure the recording settings to your liking. For example, you can set the recording quality, frame rate, and hotkeys.
3. Select what you want to record
Once you’ve opened the Screen Recorder, you’ll need to select what you want to record. You can choose to capture your entire screen or just a specific portion. Click the “Record Screen” button to record your entire screen. If you only want to record a particular portion of your screen, click the “Select Area to Record” button. You can also choose to record with or without audio. That is because the Windows 10 screen recorder captures both system audio (like music playing) and microphone audio (like your voice).
4. Start recording
After you’ve selected what you want to record, click the “Start recording” button in the middle of the screen. Once you do, your recording will begin immediately. You may see a countdown before your recording starts depending on your settings. It is now recording everything that is happening on your screen. It is easy to tell if your recording is active because you will see a small icon in the upper-left corner of your screen that looks like a camera. This recording icon will remain on your screen throughout the recording process.
5. Stop recording
Click the “Stop” button in the ScreenRecorder bar to finish your screen recording. Your recording will automatically be saved as an MP4 video file. You can find it in the “Videos” folder on your computer. You can also use the ScreenRecorder bar to pause and resume your recording or take a screenshot of your screen. Just click the “Pause” button or the “Camera” button to do so.
You now know how to screen record on Windows 10. Screen recording is a great way to capture whatever is happening on your screen, so make sure to give it a try the next time you need to record something. The simple steps above guide make it easy to record your screen without any extra software. Just remember to hit the “Stop” button when you’re done recording.
