How To Screen Record On Windows 10

With there being a bunch of different ways to screen record on Windows 10, we’ve chosen just one of these, via Xbox Game Bar as we believe this is the most efficient way while also being an app directly developed by Microsoft.

Without further ado, let’s get into how to screen record on Windows 10:

STEP
1

Ensure you have screen recording enabled

The first step to screen recording on Windows 10 is to enable your Xbox Game Bar. Open your Settings, click Gaming, then on Game Bar. Once this is open turn on the switch at the top of the window to allow game clips to be recorded, the ability to screenshot, and broadcast using Game Bar. You can also switch up any keyboard shortcuts in this area which is handy for speedy starting and stopping recordings.

STEP
2

Open the app or program you want to record

Most apps and programs are supported for screen recording through Game Bar but unfortunately starting it directly from the desktop won’t initiate it.

STEP
3

Recording your screen

To start recording your screen press Win+G to open the Game Bar. You’ll get an overlay popping up, displaying options for screenshots as well as controlling the video and audio input/output.

From this point simply press the Start Recording button to record your screen. If you want to avoid looking at the overlay and simply record your screen via a shortcut press Win+Alt+R to get your recording going.

And there you have it, you’ve just learned to record your screen on Windows 10.

If you’d like to switch up where these captures are saved, go back into your Settings, hit the Gaming section then Captures, and you can select a different folder.
