How to Record Screen in Microsoft Windows 7
Frequently, you need to record screen of your computer to be used as a video tutorial or as visual explanation of some topic. It could be more descriptive than still pictures you take with "Snipping Tool." There are software to buy for this goal. But one free and easy method is to use free software created by Microsoft.
Create Your Work
- Download the software from the official Microsoft site at Microsoft Technical Magazine Utility Spotlight here.
- You can download right from this wikiHow article
- At the top of the page there is a link to the download of the exe file.
- Save the file on your computer.
- Open the version for your computer, depending whether your operating system is 32bits or 64bits.
- Install by double clicking on the ScreenRecorder.msi file.
- You can add microphon to record audio at the same time.
Publish Your Work
- You should have an account with any of the sharing schemes as the Windows Live asks for its "User Name" and "Password" during the process.
- Upload will be done automatically.
- Windows Live Movie Maker and YouTube are consistently matched together.
- This tool can easily be used with the future version of Microsoft Windows operating system, Windows 8.
- This software cannot record contents on more than one screen. Therefore, using it in "Full Screen" mode requires disabling additional monitors.
- Best is to use this software to focus only on one application. Therefore, close all other applications.
- If you have more than one screen, put the "Camera Interface" on the screen, other than, that one which contains your target for the recording.
- The codec infrastructure on your computer should be consistent, maintained and updated for any media work. That is subtle to achieve with the bunch of standards in the hardware/software shphere. Do not become hopeless if you are not a professional.
- Do not use "annoy-ware" to achieve that.
