Do you want to learn how to record your computer screen? In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to record your screen using the windows in-built tool.

If you want to record your computer screen, or you want to record yourself playing a game, then you need to know how to do it. It’s very easy. All you need to do is follow the steps below.

How to record your computer screen in Windows 10

How to record your computer screen

  • Launch the recording-related app. The screen recorder tool works with ordinary desktop apps (and those from the Windows Store), but it can’t record specific programs, including File Manager or the complete desktop, sadly.
  • To launch the Game Bar dialog, simultaneously press the Windows key and G.
  • To load the Game Bar, select the “Yes, this is a game” checkbox. If you want to screen record a game or another type of app, follow these steps.
  • To start recording the video, click the Start Recording button (or press Win + Alt + R).
  • To stop the recording, click on the red recording bar that will be visible in the program window’s upper right corner. (If it disappears unexpectedly, hit Win + G once more to restore the Game Bar.)

There you go! Your recorded videos, which are MP4 files, can be found in the Captures subfolder of the Videos folder. Additionally, you can access them in the Xbox app’s Game DVR section, where you can edit videos and share them on Xbox Live (if they are from games).

Can Websites detect screen recording?

Are websites able to recognize screen recordings? Websites can recognize screen recordings made by browsers or browser-related software like plugins and extensions, much like they can with screenshots. However, websites won’t be able to detect them if you use a screen recording tool that is independent of the browser.

Final thoughts

Remember that you may capture screenshots using the Xbox screen recording feature as well. Instead of pressing the record button, use Win + Alt + PrtScn or the camera icon on the game bar.
