Thanks to a helpful tip from our network engineer, Brian Weeks, we learned that if you are using Windows 10, you already have a FREE BUILT IN screen recorder. It's been hiding there for most us, because it's part of another utility. There are two ways to find it:
- go to your Start Menu and search for "Game bar"
- Press Windows key and G button at same time
You should now see a bar titled "Game capturing" like the one above.
Click the circle icon to record,
or Windows key + Alt + R
When you are finished click again to stop and the videos will be saved in Videos>Captures sub-folder as MP4s.
While there are other screen recorders out there we recommend, here's one more that you already have and maybe didn't know about.
