In this time of virtual meetings, I've desired to record a couple of presentations.
I came across Windows 10's Xbox Game Bar. It's a standard feature in the latest versions of Windows 10.
Unfortunately, it doesn't work on all hardware. It works on my ThinkPad but not on my big Asus desktop with a Radeon video card.
It's incredibly easy to use. Just press Win+Alt+R to start your recording.
That's it. Then click the blue button to stop recording.
It creates an mp4 file in C:\Users\[your name]\Videos\Captures.
It couldn't be easier.
This worked perfectly when I was recording a Zoom presentation where I was just watching and not interacting.
But in another use, I was watching a webinar where the presenters used multiple windows. Every time I switched between windows; the recording stopped.
Still, it's pretty nice. And the price is right.
