Built-in screen recorder in the Windows 10

Built-in screen recorder in the Windows 10

(OP)
Good News Yes there is…. Hope This helps everyone.

The screen recorder is built into the Game bar and you may well not have seen it. If you've ever wondered how to make video of what you're doing in Windows, this is precisely the utility you need. Here's how to access and use it -- including details of a secret keyboard shortcut.

The screen recorder is not a standalone utility, so if you take a browse through the Start menu, you won't find it. You will, however, be able to find the Game bar -- but if you're not a gamer, you may have seen this tool and thought nothing of it. Take a look in the Start menu and search for "Game bar" or, if you're a fan of keyboard shortcuts, hit the Windows key and G simultaneously.

The Game bar will appear, and the "Game capturing" caption that is shown beneath the time in the window that appears gives a hint to what is possible.

You'll notice a "record" button -- the circle icon -- or you can press the Windows key + Alt + R at the same time to start recording. In fact, there's no need to launch the Game bar at all; you can just use the keyboard shortcut to start recording screen activity.

It is possible that you will see a message informing you that screen recording is not available because gaming features have not been enabled. No problem! Just tick the box in the window that appears and recording will start.

Recordings are automatically saved in MP4 format in the Videos > Captures sub-folder of your user folder. You can also access the recordings via the Game bar.
