  1. Issue with Screen Recording using "Win + G" (video game recorder) function


    Hello everyone, my challenge is how to make the game (screen) recorder to capture whatever/everything/anything that is being done on my screen. So far I have observed that the Win+G function only captures what is being done only on the active window when the function was launched.


    For instance, when screenshotting, there are two basic ways namely:

    • Screenshot of active window only = Alt + PrtScr
    • Screenshot of entire screen = PrtScr

    I'm looking for the screen video recording equivalent of these two commands (if such exist). Does anyone know a command that will allow a user to record video of the entire screen, or do I have to rely on a third-party application to do that?

    :)

    Record and Take Screenshots with Game Bar in Windows 10


    Crazzzzzyyyy quick question but can this be used for things other then apps and games. Such as a way to record a program or a browser for helping make tutorials. The way I understand "Snipping Tool" can take screen shots as well as custom cutouts of the screen your on. And the "Steps Recorder" records the steps taken and can also apply notes to the steps. But can the Game Bar record things like a tutorial steps. Like by recording your screen as a video rather then just steps. Like I said above Crazy Question.

    Issue with Screen Recording using "Win + G" (video game recorder) function

    Recording of game

    I want to record games that I play and make video. I use the Windows 10 facility for this by precing Win + G and in the box that appear I press on the Red dot. During the game I saw the time recorder and when I finish the game I stop the recording of the
    video.

    I get the file of the video but my problem is that the files are very big around 100Mbit for 3 minuts video.

    My question is how I can configure to get a small file.

    Regards
