Screen recording on a Microsoft Surface Book Laptop can be a useful tool for a variety of reasons. Whether you're creating a tutorial, capturing gameplay, or saving a video call, knowing how to screen record can come in handy. This guide will walk you through the process of screen recording on your Microsoft Surface Book Laptop.
Before you start, it's important to note that Windows 10, the operating system on your Microsoft Surface Book, comes with a built-in screen recording tool called the Xbox Game Bar. This tool was initially designed for recording gameplay, but it can also be used to record any activity on your screen.
To begin, you need to open the Xbox Game Bar. You can do this by pressing the Windows key + G on your keyboard. This will bring up the Xbox Game Bar overlay on your screen. If you're using this tool for the first time, you might need to click on the checkbox that says "Yes, this is a game" to enable the recording features.
Once the Xbox Game Bar is open, you'll see a variety of widgets. The one you're interested in is the one labeled "Capture." If you don't see it, you can bring it up by clicking on the webcam icon in the top bar of the overlay. This will open the Capture widget, which contains all the controls you need to start recording your screen.
In the Capture widget, you'll see a circular record button. Clicking on this button will start the screen recording. Once you start recording, you'll see a small timer in the top right corner of your screen, indicating that the recording is in progress. You can stop the recording at any time by clicking on the stop button in the Capture widget or by pressing the Windows key + G again to bring up the overlay and then clicking on the stop button.
After you stop the recording, the video will be automatically saved in the "Videos" folder under "Captures" on your computer. You can access this folder by opening the File Explorer and navigating to the "Videos" folder. From there, you can view, edit, or share your screen recording as you wish.
It's important to note that the Xbox Game Bar can only record one application window at a time. If you want to record your entire screen, including switching between different applications, you might need to use a third-party screen recording software.
In conclusion, screen recording on a Microsoft Surface Book Laptop is a straightforward process thanks to the built-in Xbox Game Bar tool. With just a few clicks, you can start capturing your screen activity and create useful videos for a variety of purposes.
