How to record your screen on Windows 11

Windows 11 offers two built-in options for screen recording:

1. Snipping Tool:

  • Pros: Simple and lightweight, good for short recordings of specific areas.
  • Cons: No keyboard shortcut, limited features.

Here's how to use it:

  1. Open the Snipping Tool by searching for it in the Start menu or pressing Windows Key + Shift + S.
  2. Click the record button (looks like a video camera) and then New Recording.
  3. Drag and select the portion of the screen you want to record.
  4. Click Start to begin recording. There will be a 3-second countdown.
  5. Click Stop when finished.
  6. Save the recording as an MP4 file.

2. Xbox Game Bar:

  • Pros: More features like recording audio, adding narration, and taking screenshots, keyboard shortcuts available.
  • Cons: Can be more resource-intensive, might feel cluttered for non-gamers.

Here's how to use it:

  1. Open the Xbox Game Bar by pressing Windows Key + G.
  2. Click the record button (looks like a red circle).
  3. Choose to record Full screen or a Specific window.
  4. Click Start recording.
  5. Use the microphone button to record audio with your narration.
  6. Click Stop recording when finished.
  7. Your recording will be saved in the Captures folder under Videos.

Additional options:

  • Third-party software: Numerous free and paid screen recording software offer advanced features like editing, annotations, and live streaming. Popular options include OBS Studio, ShareX, and Camtasia.
  • Online screen recorders: Services like Loom and Screencastify allow you to record directly in your browser without installing software.

Remember, the best option depends on your specific needs and preferences. Consider the length, area, audio requirements, and desired features before choosing your recording method.
