How to screen record on Windows 10 and Windows 11

To use our online screen recorder for Windows 10, log in or sign up for free to Clipchamp's online video editor.

Note: This tutorial will explore how to use the screen recording feature, not the screen and camera recording feature.

Step 1. Click on the screen recording tool

In a new or existing video, click on the Record & create tab on the left sidebar. Click on the screen recording feature. 

Step 2. Screen record your video

A popup record button will appear at the bottom left of your screen. Check your mic settings here to make sure your audio is working correctly. The screen recorder uses your built-in desktop microphone. 

To start recording your screen, click on the big red button. A popup window will appear with screen recording options. Either record your entire screen, window, or Chrome tab.

You will be brought to the screen you have selected to screen record. Your screen is now actively recording.

Step 3. Save your screen recording

To stop recording, click on the square stop button.

A preview popup window will appear. Rewatch your video to see if it is correct. If you're happy with your recording, click on the save and edit button. If you would like to redo your recording, click on the retake recording button.

Add special effects to online screen recordings

Personalize your video with the brand kit

Keep your screen recordings consistent and recognizable with the brand kit feature. Easily customize your videos with logos, color schemes, and fonts. You can even turn a logo into a video watermark by reducing the opacity.

Trim your screen recording video clips

If you have accidentally made your screen recording too long or want to cut out unwanted sections of your video, just use the trimming tool. Drag in and out the clip's green sidebars on the timeline, and use the scissors icon to cut your clip or the freehand cropping tool.

Resize your screen recording for any platform

Want to upload your screen recording to multiple platforms? Choose from 16:9, 9:16, 1:1, 4:5, 2:3, and 21:9 aspect ratios and resize your video for free.

Add text and titles to your screen recording

If you’re sharing your screen recording on YouTube or a learning portal, start and finish your video with a ready-to-use intro and outro template. Also, add text boxes for captions and subtitles using various titles, colors, and fonts.

Frequently asked questions
