I bought my new laptop with Windows 8 a few days ago, and I also did a quick search to find a good screen recorder that can run well on Windows 8. I tried Fraps but it can not capture the Windows 8 desktop. Any suggestions/workarounds? Thanks in advance.
As we all know, Windows 8 is optimized for touch screens and tablets that makes a great progress. Currently, people tend to give it a shot. However, some software is incompatible with Windows 8. Many friends reflect that lots of recording tools can not run well on it. However, Apowersoft’s Screen Recorder can support Windows 8 perfectly and it is worth a try.
2. Click Start Recording and the app will start immediately.
Tips: If your computer does not install Java Applet, it will install it automatically. Generally, the Java Applet will be loaded in one minute or less, which totally depends on your network speed. No worries about the loading, you will never install the Java Applet for the second time.
When the screen recorder pops up, you can use it right away. You’d better make some settings before recording to meet your requirements such as choosing your Audio Input, Hot keys, Mouse Cursor recording and so on.
3. Select the recording mode under drop-down button beside Record.Tap it to record now.
Besides, if you want to capture your desktop, you can click Screenshot button. This can help you take any screen shots on your Windows 8.
Hope this can solve your problem. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.
