How to Record Screen on Windows

By cherindecember ·
Want to share the tools I used for recording screen on Windows, you may compare the pros and cons from the content below. Meanwhile, I also would like to collect other great recorders from you guys. Thanks!

Since personally I'm more into web-based recorder, the online recorder part would be more detailed.

1. Apowersoft online screen recorder (Free)
As in the title shown, it's 100% free, which makes it my every day choice for recording the courses.
Function includes:
Record screen and camera
Record system sound and microphone
Annotate the screen while recording
Settings for frame rate, bit rate, audio, mouse style, saving directory, hotkeys
Trim video length
One thing that I think it can be improved is that if you want to record the camera image independently, you need to extraly select the camera image as the recording region.

2. Screen-cast-o-matic (Partially free)
Record screen and camera
Record system sound and microphone
Delete the videos right after it's finished
Edit the video
This one has a independent camera recording mode, but for trial version, you can only record for 15minutes. And it's editing funciton is more powerful than the first one, therefore, if you have a higher requirement for the editing part, you can try out the purchased version. Basically, it works smooth all the way through.

3. And for people who prefer using a desktop version program, my recommendations are OBS, bandicam or filmora. And for the first free online tool, I also found that it has a desktop version ApowerREC which also looks great, only try out the 3 minutes, pretty similar to filmora. For OBS and bandicam, the settings are more detailed and professional. But if you are a person who don't want to bother adjusting the complicated recording settings, ApowerREC and Filmora can be the great options.

SCREEN RECORDERS

by deborasumopayroll In reply to How to Record Screen on W ...

A free screen recorder is just what you need if you're looking to make a video of what's happening on your desktop. Like an advanced version of a screenshot, screen recording enables you to create demonstration videos, record gaming achievements for posterity, and create videos that can be shared online on the likes of YouTube.
It is important to choose the right free screen recorder depending on what you intend to do with the footage you capture. Different recorders offer a range of different features, can save captures in varying formats, or capture footage from external sources such as a webcam – and some even give you the opportunity to upload to the internet directly from within the program. Some run nicely on average hardware, while others are more demanding. The point is that there is plenty of choice.
1. OBS Studio
2. FlashBack Express
3. Apowersoft Free Online Screen Recorder
4. Debut Video Capture
5. ShareX

Screen Recorder

by nickhudsonhere In reply to How to Record Screen on W ...

There are many Screenrecorders. I can only vouch for OBS. While gaming, it can be easily the best screen capture software for you. OBS Studio is open source, and completely free to use without restrictions.

OBS Studio supports both streaming and recording in high definition, with no restrictions on the number or length of your creations. You can stream live to Twitch or YouTube gaming, save projects and come back to them later, or encode your footage in FLV format and save it locally.

Because OBS Studio can record directly from your graphics card, it’s able to capture games running in full-screen mode (many other screen recorders can only record if the game is windowed), with customizable hotkeys to control the recording. OBS Studio can also make full use of multi-core CPUs for improved performance and can record at 60FPS (or even higher).

It might take a little while to set it up exactly how you want, but OBS Studio is by far the best and most powerful screen recorder for gamers and streamers.

There are good screen recording software`s that you are mentioned but there are couple of them i think you missed. OBS Studio is one of the widely used application by the gamers for streaming gameplay. Most of the Youtubers also use it for streaming.

Windows 10 has a built-in free screen recorder that you might not know abou

by marilyntferro007 In reply to How to Record Screen on W ...

You have really most likely been using Windows ten for a very long time now, but does not mean that you have discovered everything it's to offer. The operating system is full of features, but there are several which are hidden away to the degree that they might be considered secrets.

One particular gem will be the display recording tool. What? You did not know that Windows ten could record videos of on screen activity? You are not by yourself. The display screen recorder is assembled in the Game bar also you might well not have watched it. If you have ever thought about how to make videos of what you are doing in Windows, this's exactly the utility for you. Here is how you can access and make use of it -- including details associated with a secret computer keyboard shortcut.

The display screen recorder isn't a standalone utility, therefore in case you are taking a browse through the Start menu, you will not think it is. You'll, nonetheless, be ready to locate the Game bar -- but in case you are not really a gamer, you might have seen this particular device and also believed nothing of it. Have a glance in the Start menu and hunt for "Game bar" or perhaps, in case you are a fan of keyboard shortcuts, reach the Windows solution and G simultaneously.

The Game bar is going to appear, so the "Game capturing" caption that's displayed beneath time inside the window that shows up provides a hint to what's possible.

You will note a "record" switch -- the circle icon -- or maybe you are able to press the Windows solution + Alt + R at the same time to begin recording. In reality, there is simply no need to release the Game bar at all; you are able to only use the computer keyboard shortcut to begin capturing screen activity.
