Screen recording on a Microsoft Surface Go 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 Go Laptop.
Before you start, it's important to note that Windows 10, the operating system on your Microsoft Surface Go, comes with a built-in screen recording tool called the Xbox Game Bar. This tool was initially designed for gamers, but it can 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 proceed.
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." Click on it to open the Capture widget. This widget has controls for screen recording, including starting and stopping the recording.
To start recording, click on the circular record button, or press the Windows key + Alt + R on your keyboard. This will immediately start recording your screen. While recording, you can use your computer as you normally would. Everything that happens on your screen will be captured in the recording.
While recording, you can also turn on the microphone if you want to narrate what's happening on the screen. To do this, click on the microphone icon on the Capture widget, or press the Windows key + Alt + M on your keyboard.
When you're done recording, you can stop the recording by clicking on the stop button on the Capture widget, or by pressing the Windows key + Alt + R again. Once you stop the recording, a notification will pop up to let you know that the recording has been saved. By default, screen recordings are saved in the "Captures" folder in your "Videos" folder.
In conclusion, screen recording on a Microsoft Surface Go Laptop is a straightforward process thanks to the built-in Xbox Game Bar tool. By following these steps, you can easily capture whatever is happening on your screen. Whether you're creating a tutorial, capturing gameplay, or saving a video call, screen recording can be a very useful tool.
