Screen recording has been a major activity for most PC users for capturing their screens either for video tutorials or illustrations with the help of 3rd party software. But Windows 10 has an inbuilt app to handle that which you didn’t know and it’s very easy getting around it. You must be good with shortcuts on your keyboard to get around it because it’s a bit tricky.
To activate the inbuilt tool within the Windows 10 for the screen recording all you need to do is to use some shortcut keys on your keyboard and your operating system will show you the recording options by itself. What is now need to be done is to follow the simple steps given below.
First of all, click on the Start and type “Xbox app” and open that app.
Once you are in the Xbox app all you need to do is to press a combination of keys on your keyboard simultaneously and that is “win+G”.
Note: Press “win+G” only when the screen you want to record is in front of you.
Once you press “win+G” together, a popup will come and will ask you whether it is a game or not, click on “Yes, it is a game” option.
Once the game option is selected you will see three main options like “Screenshot,” “Start Recording” and “Settings,” on the screen, choose the Recording button.
By clicking on the recording button, it will automatically start the recording of the current screen on your Windows 10. When you are done with what you want to record just click the recording button for one more time, and the recording of your screen will be stopped.
Remember, all the recorded files will be saved in “C:/Users/Videos/Capture” folder by default.
That’s it! Your screen recording adventure by using the inbuilt tool of Windows 10 has been done and dusted. So now you must have got the idea that by using this cool trick you don’t need to have a third party tool to record your screen on the Windows 10. If you don’t wish to record your screen, then you may also choose the “Screenshot” option mentioned in Step #3 above.
