In this article:
When you want to record a game or an app on your window's screen, you need a tool that makes it easy and fast. Windows comes with a built-in screen recorder tool, but you can still rely on third-party apps like BlueJeans for more advanced features that do a better job. Without further ado, here is how to record your screen on Windows 10.
How to Screen Record on Windows 10
Windows 10 has made your work easier when you want to capture your screen, thanks to the built-in recording feature known as the Xbox Game bar. The game bar is used to record games on your PC or the ones you stream. The feature can also record video from your screen using any Windows application, web browser, or any other program. The applications you record are saved as an MP4 video file. You can use the feature to record videos on your laptop to capture gameplay or create a tutorial. To make things easier, we show you the steps on how to record your screen on Windows.
- Enable the screen recording
The first thing you have to do is go to Settings, then gaming, and then choose the game bar. Make sure you turn on the record game clips.
- Open the app to record
The first thing you have to do is open the app you want to record. You can't use the tool for capturing the entire desktop or file manager, but you can use it in apps. Press Windows key and G simultaneously to open your game bar dialog.
- Check the "Yes, this is a game" box
By checking the above box, you load the game bar. You need to do this whether you are recording an app or a game.

You can click on win + Alt +R to start recording your video.

Once you are done recording, click on the red recording bar to stop your recording.
That's it. All the videos you have recorded are automatically saved as MP4 files. You can find them in the videos folder on the captures subfolder. You can also find the files on the Game DVR menu.
