Part 1 How to Record Screen on Windows 10 (Built-in Screen Recorder)

A free screen recorder, called Xbox Game Bar, is installed on your Windows 10 laptop for you to record your screen on Windows 10. It is part of the Xbox app that is primarily designed to record games that you play directly on your PC or those you stream from an Xbox console. You can use the Game Bar to record more than gameplay and on-screen activities on your Windows 10 PC.

Follow the simple steps below to learn how to record your screen on Windows 10:

Step 1
Open the app you want to record on your Windows 10 PC. Notice that the screen recorder tool can't capture some programs (such as file explorer, or the entire desktop), but it does work in regular desktop apps in Windows 10.
Step 2
Press the default keyboard shortcut to open the Game Bar dialog: Win + G.
