There are many reasons why you might want to record your screen. Windows 10 has a secret, built-in tool that will help you record video clips of screen activity. Game DVR function can capture your gaming activity, but you can also capture virtually any type of screen activity in Windows 10 and save it as a video clip.
How to use it:
- Open the app or screen you wish to record (in this tutorial we’ll use google chrome)
- Press + G to open the Game Bar, Xbox feature that lets you record screen activity
- You’ll see a message “Do you want to open Game bar” along with a checkbox that reads: “Yes, this is a game.” You’ll have to mark the checkbox to pretend you’re recording a game.
- Game Bar will be opened with controls to start and stop the recording. If you wish to record your own voice or other external audio, click “Record mic.”
- Press the red record button on the Game Bar or press + Alt + R to start the screen capture. You will see small bar with recording time. You can also stop the recording any time on this bar.
- When you stop recording, a message pops up that says: “Game clip recorded.”
- You can find recorded video in ThisPC > Videos > Captures or Drive C > Users > Yourprofile > Videos > Captures
