How to record full screen on Windows 10? Easy. You can use a full-screen recorder or the built-in Xbox Game Bar to capture your full-screen activity. This article will lead you through the whole process of how to record the entire screen on Windows 10 (with audio) using these two tools.
WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro is an all-around audio & video processing program featured with a handy screen recorder (no watermark) that can record computer screen efficiently. You can use it to record part of the screen or capture the entire desktop on Windows with no issue. Meanwhile, it allows you to record the system sound or the mic audio or both with the video seamlessly. The recording will be saved as a high-quality MP4 file. If you want to further edit the recording, you can take advantage of its built-in video editor to crop, trim, add special effects... to the video. Moreover, it can compress and convert the recording to other popular formats and devices as well.
Launch HD Video Converter Factory Pro and enter the Recorder module.
Click the Full Screen mode and hit the OK button to select your whole screen for recording.
Next, tick off the audio source. You can choose to record from your microphone (Microphone) or the system sound (Stereo Mix) or both. If your wanted option isn't availble, go to your Windows Settings > System > Sound > Sound Control Panel > Recording > right-click to Show Disabled Devices > enable your wanted audio source > reopen the Recorder.
Then, in the Quick settings, choose a recording quality (high quality is recommended). After that, click the bottom inverted triangle button to set an output folder.
Now, click the big red REC button to begin your recording. It will start after a five-second countdown. When you are done, press the hotkeys ‘Ctrl + F1’ to stop the recording. Then, you can go to the output folder you just set to view the recorded video.
Xbox Game Bar, the default app on Windows, can also help you record full screen on Windows 10/11. It is first developed to record PC games. But you can also use it to record other screen activities. There is one drawback, though. The recording feature is not available for the Windows desktop or the File Explorer, and you can only record video within a single application window in full-screen mode. Here is how to record full screen on Windows 10 with Xbox Game Bar.
1. Open the app you wish to record.
2. Press ‘Win + G’ on your keyboard to open Xbox Game Bar.
3. Navigate to the Capture widget and click the record button to start recording. Alternatively, you can hit the Windows Key + Alt + R to start the recording as well. A small recording widget will display on your screen showing you the recording time.
4. When you finish your recording, click on the recording widget to exit. Then, you can see your recording in the Gallery section.
