Using QuickTime on a Mac

This is a simple and fast way to record your screen on a Mac. QuickTime is already installed on your Mac, so all you need to do is open it, and follow these directions:

  1. Launch QuickTime Player and choose File, New Screen Recording

  2. Click the drop down menu next to the record button to select microphone options.

  3. Now when you click the record button, the screen will display these directions (for choosing what part of the screen you want to record).

  4. Once you're recording, you can stop recording by clicking the small "stop recording" button in your menu bar. It looks like this:

  5. Share your QuickTime recording by:
    1. File->Save
    2. Drag the saved file into Google Drive.
    3. The video will be processed by Google, and available for viewing, usually within 15 minutes. It will be available for download by the person you share it with immediately.

Using "Game Bar" on a Windows 10 Laptop

You can record the screen on Windows 10 using a built-in program called "Game Bar". To record your screen using your Game Bar, press the Windows key + G and then click the record button in the Game Bar. You can also toggle the microphone on the Game Bar, to include voice narration or go on mute.

To learn more about the powerful functionality of the Game Bar Captures on Windows 10, see this documentation from Microsoft.

  5. Tap the red status bar at the top of your screen and tap Stop.
