If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is probably worth a million. We often use screenshots to share information with our friends and colleagues. We also use screenshots as a bookmark of sorts to remember things that we otherwise might forget. But screens are not enough. Not always at least. Sometime a more dynamic solution is required to convey the required information. At times like these, a simple feature called screen recording comes in handy.

Screen recording functionality in PCs lets users make a recording of the information being conveyed. It is particularly helpful when you need to walk someone through an experience or you need to show someone the step that they need to follow for performing a task.


Now, Windows 10 has a screen recording utility called the Xbox Game Bar that lets users record their PC screens. Users can also record their own audio along with the movements on the screen for the same. But if you don't like that, you can also pick a screen recording app for recording the screen. So, here is a simple way using which you can record the screen on your Windows 10-powered PCs.

It is worth noting that you can also record your own voice along with the screen based on your needs and requirements.
