Screen recording on a Google Pixelbook (Windows Version) laptop is a simple process that can be accomplished in a few steps. This feature allows you to capture whatever is happening on your screen, which can be useful for creating tutorials, recording gameplay, or documenting software bugs. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it.
Before you start, ensure that your Google Pixelbook is running on the Windows operating system. This guide is specifically for the Windows version of the Google Pixelbook. If you're using a different operating system, the steps may vary.
Firstly, you need to access the Xbox Game Bar, which is a built-in feature of Windows 10. To do this, press the Windows key and the G key simultaneously on your keyboard. This will open the Xbox Game Bar. If you haven't used this feature before, you may need to enable it. To do this, go to the settings menu, select 'Gaming', then 'Xbox Game Bar', and toggle the switch to 'On'.
Once the Xbox Game Bar is open, you'll see a variety of widgets. Look for the one that says 'Capture'. If you can't see it, click on the widget menu (the icon that looks like two overlapping squares) and select 'Capture' from the list. This will open the capture widget.
In the capture widget, you'll see several options. To start a screen recording, click on the circular 'Record' button, or press the Windows key, Alt, and R simultaneously. This will start recording whatever is on your screen. You can also choose to record audio by toggling the 'Record audio' switch to 'On'.
While recording, you can use your laptop as you normally would. The recording will capture everything that happens on your screen. If you want to stop the recording, you can either click on the 'Stop' button in the capture widget, or press the Windows key, Alt, and R again.
Once you've stopped the recording, a notification will appear to let you know that the recording has been saved. By default, screen recordings are saved in the 'Videos' folder, in a subfolder called 'Captures'. You can access this folder through the File Explorer.
To view your recording, navigate to the 'Captures' folder and double-click on the video file. This will open the video in your default media player. From here, you can watch the video, share it, or edit it using video editing software.
In conclusion, screen recording on a Google Pixelbook (Windows Version) laptop is a straightforward process. By using the Xbox Game Bar, you can easily capture your screen activity for a variety of purposes. Just remember to enable the feature in your settings if you haven't used it before, and to check the 'Captures' folder for your recordings.
