Some new features of Windows 10 have become indispensable to users but in the case of the recording feature – not many users actually know that it exists.

In this article, you will find out how to use screen recording in Windows 10

The problem with it, of course, is that it is not in plain sight. The recording feature is hidden. For those of you that are looking to record a video, you capture it with this feature. To activate it, you will need to use the Game Bar. Primarily meant to record screenshots and video clips from games, it is now used for all the other video.

Read below to learn how:

  • Step 1. Press the Windows key and G.
  • Step 2. In the pop-up window, check “This is a game” box.
  • Step 3. Start recording your screen by hitting the capture button.
  • Step 4. When you are done recording, just press the button again and the recording will stop.

NB: There are shortcuts for these actions too: you can press the following combination: Windows key + Alt + R in order to start or stop your recording.

Of course, there are other types of recording software that you can use, including the Xbox app that can record videos from your games, along with Screen Recorder, Active Presenter and Snagit. But all of them will be considered third-party software. Getting more software to replace a feature that already exists in your system seems like a lot of work. However, it is up to you to decide what screen recording software to use – in any case, to avoid issues and malfunctions, you should have up-to-date drivers on your computer. Lucky for you, you can install Auslogics Driver Updater and get the scan of your system. This tool will take care of your drivers and update them in due course.

Hopefully, you learned how to record screen in Windows 10 and you are now equipped with a new and exciting feature to explore.
