Did you know that Windows 10 comes with it’s very own screen recording software, which you can use to record your computer screen activity and gameplay.
First off, it’s important to say that the screen recording tool that comes with Windows 10 is not a stand alone program, but an extra feature that comes along with the XBOX app.
Even though it’s mainly intended for gameplay recording, you can use it the same way to record apps in windows.
Recording with it really cant be more simple. First you need to open your XBOX app and keep it running in the background. Then, while running a certain game or app, you press the windows and G keys on your keyboard, which will cause the Game bar to pop up.
If that’s the first time you’re recording a particular app, you’ll be prompted with a message asking ”Do you want to open game bar”, to which you will reply by clicking on ”Yes this is a game”.
To start capture, you simply press the record button, or the win+alt+r buttons on your keyboard.
To stop you can press that same hotkey combination, or you can simply exit the game or app you were using, and the recording will automatically send. By default, your video will be stored as a mp4 file in the ”Capture” folder, located in your user videos folder.
You can also find them in the Video DDR section of XBOX, where you are able to share, trim and rename the clip, open it’s folder location or delete it.
Besides normal recording, you can also take a screen shot or set a background recording process.
