Did you know that Windows 10 has a screen recording feature built-in? Many of us use different screencasting apps or software’s that tend to wear our PCs down. But imagine what we could do if we don’t have to deal with any unnecessary screencasting software. I mean really Windows 10 has made out life much easier. We don’t have to look for other apps to do it but rather use one of our own.
Though it’s part of the Xbox integration known as Game Bar, it’s very easy to use. So let’s take a look at how you can use this easy, intuitive feature to get rid of the extra worries.
Now, this is the best part, after you have used the feature for the first time Xbox will remember the Game Bar setting in the app. So from the next time when you’ll try to open the same app, you can just start recording or screencasting directly without pressing Win + G to bring up the Game Bar.
And after that just press...
You can always tweak the setting of the recorder. For that you have to:
Now for to find out where the video is being saved. The video is saved in Captures folder in Videos as an MP4 format that you can play in any media player. So, you don’t have to worry about any conversion of the video file.
The recorded videos will also be available in Xbox under Game DVR, and if you want, then you can view or edit them right there. Pretty amazing, right?
But there are also different setting to tweak in the Gaming section in the Settings app...
One thing you have to remember is that the default duration of the recording is maxed out at 1 hour. Though you can change it to 30 minutes or 2 hours maximum in Game DVR section. So, if you need more screencasting time, then you should look for another software or make separate videos and join them.
Though the screencast feature of Windows 10 takes it to a whole another level, it requires some specific hardware to do that. But you can easily find that out after you press Win + G.
When you see the recording bar if the Red dot is grayed out, that means your PC doesn’t have the hardware requirements to use the feature. But you do meet the requirements you’ll have a lot of fun using the Screencasting feature of Windows 10.
