Windows 10 is a very complete and feature rich operating system. In fact, a large portion of users are not familiar with some of the most essential features of Microsoft’s operating system. A while ago we taught you how to take screenshots and edit them on your Windows 10 PCs. Today we want to show you how to record screen in Windows 10. Let’s get started!
Recording screen in Windows 10 is much easier than it looks
Many users believe that in order to be able to record screen in Windows 10, it is necessary to install third-party programs. Nothing is further from reality. Microsoft provides us with a screen recording tool within reach of a simple keystroke: Windows + G.
This will take us to the Game Bar or Xbox Game Bar. Don’t be fooled by the name, because we don’t need to be playing in order to use this tool. Once opened, we can select the “Capture” option to start recording the content displayed in the Windows 10 window. It is important to remember that you cannot capture your desktop or the file explorer, but you can capture everything else.
If you want, you can enable the option to “turn on microphone while recording”, which is especially useful if you’re trying to record a tutorial or something like that. During recording, a floating window will appear to inform you of the recording time and allow you to stop it. To view the recordings, all you have to do is click on the “show all captures” option. From this same place you can delete them, see their size and the date of their creation. You can also access it from the “users> username> videos> screenshots” path of your file explorer.
How easy was it to record your PC screen in Windows 10? Often the hard thing is not doing things but knowing how to do them. The Game Bar is a very useful tool that all users should know, not just gamers!
