Windows 1

0’s screen recording tool is part of the Xbox Game Bar. Despite what the name implies, the Game Bar is for more than just gaming. In this guide, we’ll use it to take screenshots.

Screen capture is part of the “Capture” widget, which can be accessed through the Game Bar’s “Widget Menu” feature. To use the Widget menu, you need the Windows 10 May 2019 Update or later.

Launch Screen Capture on Windows 10

First, press Windows + G to launch the game bar. You can also open the Start menu and start the “Xbox Game Bar” application.

(If the Game Bar overlay doesn’t appear, go to Settings> Gaming> Xbox Game Bar. Make sure the Game Bar is “On” here. You can also check the hotkey. You can set “Open Game Bar” to any key combination instead of Windows + G.)

In the Game Bar overlay screen, look for the “Recording” window.

If you don’t see it, click the Widget menu icon on the left. It looks like multiple bulleted lines on the left.

A drop-down list will appear; click on ‘Capture’. The “Capture” shortcut may also be in the Game Bar toolbar.

How to start recording your screen

Locate the “Capture” widget panel in the overlay. There are four buttons on the Capture widget (from left to right):

  • Screenshot: Takes a screenshot of the active window.
  • Record last 30 seconds: Records the last 30 seconds.
  • Start recording: Start recording your active window.
  • Turn on the microphone while recording: When this option is enabled, Windows 10 will record audio from your computer’s microphone and include it in the recording.

You will see text below the buttons. This is how you know what the active window is, or what is being recorded. For example, if you are browsing the Internet, the title of the open tab will be displayed.
