Screen recording on a 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 Surface Book Laptop.
Before you start, it's important to note that while the Surface Book Laptop doesn't come with a built-in screen recording feature, there are several third-party applications available that can help you accomplish this task. Some of the most popular ones include OBS Studio, Camtasia, and Bandicam. For the purpose of this guide, we'll be using OBS Studio as it's free and offers a wide range of features.
Firstly, you'll need to download and install OBS Studio. You can do this by visiting the OBS Studio website, clicking on the 'Windows' button, and following the prompts to download and install the software. Once the software is installed, you can open it by clicking on its icon on your desktop or in your start menu.
Once OBS Studio is open, you'll see a variety of options. To start a new screen recording, you'll need to create a new 'Scene'. You can do this by clicking on the '+' button under the 'Scenes' box in the bottom left corner of the screen. You can name this scene whatever you like, but it's a good idea to choose something descriptive if you plan on creating multiple recordings.
After creating a new scene, you'll need to add a 'Source'. This is what OBS Studio will record. In this case, you'll want to add a 'Display Capture' source, which will record your entire screen. To do this, click on the '+' button under the 'Sources' box (next to the 'Scenes' box), select 'Display Capture', and click 'OK'. You can then select which display you want to record if you have multiple monitors.
Before you start recording, you might want to adjust your settings. You can do this by clicking on 'Settings' in the bottom right corner of the screen. Here, you can adjust things like the output quality, frame rate, and audio settings. Once you're happy with your settings, click 'OK' to close the settings menu.
To start recording, simply click on the 'Start Recording' button in the bottom right corner of the screen. When you're done recording, click on the 'Stop Recording' button in the same location. Your recording will automatically be saved to your computer in the location specified in your settings.
In conclusion, while the Surface Book Laptop doesn't come with a built-in screen recording feature, third-party applications like OBS Studio make it easy to record your screen. By following these steps, you can quickly and easily start screen recording on your Surface Book Laptop.
