If you don’t know how to screen record on Windows 10 with its native tool, we are going to help you out in this guide. Not all users know that Windows 10 has a built-in screen recording tool. If you look in the Start menu, you won’t find it. That’s because instead of making the screen recorder a standalone app, Microsoft included it as a feature of the Xbox Playbar in Windows 10. But you can also use it like any other app.
How to screen record on Windows 10 with its native tool?
First, we need to make sure that we have the game bar active. To do this we access System Settings > Games > Games Bar and activate it.
Then you have to go to the ‘Xbox Game Bar’ application that you will find in the Start menu or you can use the “Windows + G” hotkey. The game bar will appear in the center of the screen at the top, with other visible screens that can be customized.
To start a recording, simply press the corresponding button (the circle) and the screen will be recorded until you press stop on the floating panel.
The recordings will be saved in .MP4 video format and can be accessed from the Gallery section of the game bar or you can navigate to Videos > Captures folder. Remember that this is a tool intended for recording games, it should be noted that the recording will only capture the contents of a single window, the one we have active.
