Many people, especially those who are not so good in terms of technology, have been wondering how other people make a recording of their computer screens in making a video tutorial, recording webinar, and any other things that can be recorded on the screen of a computer. It may probably appear to be challenging on their part, and seems to be very difficult to make. On the other hand, this thing is just too simple by using particular software. Let me give you quick tips on how is recording of a PC’s screen is done.

How to Record Computer’s Screen with Good Quality

There are two options on how to record a computer screen- online and offline (download software depending on what operating system your PC has).

Method 1. Apowersoft Online Screen Recorder

This is where I record my computer screen free online. Apowersoft Online Screen Recorder is a tool used in recording both video and audio from your computer screen using different modes like Full-Screen mode, Custom-Screen mode and Webcam Capture mode. Moreover, it also allows users to record both video and audio directly  from live chat applications  like Skype, MSN and Gchat. Recording is just a button away with unlimited amounts of video and audio. Furthermore, video editing is also possible in this tool because it has an “Easy Edit function”. If you want to deliver recorded videos to friends or watch it on your gadgets, there’s a built-in convert letting you convert resulted files to compatible formats for any cases . In addition, you can also take screenshots anywhere in your computer screen. Furthermore, this tool allows users to record videos from webcam. It can also be used in scheduling tasks.

  • F10 to pause or resume recording
  • F7 to stop recording
  • Ctrl+Alt+E to show or hide control bar.At the bottom part of the tool, you can see tabs where you can delete, rename, play, convert or edit the video.
