Web Tool Wednesday - Windows 10 Built In Screen Recorder

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.
