Windows 10 Screen Recording

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.
