Last December 2016 I purchase an HP Laptop with Windows 10 Home Edition and upgraded to Windows 10 Pro by February 2017. During those times I am not quite sure of the applications that came along with the Windows 10 Home Edition as well as applications in the Windows 10 Pro Edition.
And recently, I was thinking and researching for some screen capture software to buy or some open source version. I have looked up to Camtasia as well as CamStudio as the application that I would probably install or buy.
But I was still not convinced that those two software’s were the best choices. So I explored and wanted to see if there are applications that were already installed in my Windows 10 Pro. My reason is that, I want to save cost on purchasing Camtasia around $229 with the SnagIt Bundle. And save my computer some RAM by not installing additional software. And my usage and requirement for a screen capture software was not that heavy. A basic functionality will do.
Windows 10 Built-in Free Screen Recording Software
Then, I came across CyberLink PowerDirector and run the app to see some screen recording features available. I was not able to find the feature at first usage. And so I visited their website if there is indeed such features. Fortunately there exist one. I am not that sure if all Windows 10 editions came preinstalled with CyberLink PowerDirector. But knowing this greatly helped me in my search for a screen recording.
As an example, please check this video which I made using CyberLink PowerDirector. This video shows you how I paired my Toshiba Wireless Headset with my HP Laptop. You may comment on the video and tell me if CyberLink PowerDirector screen capture feature is a good alternative to Camtasia and other screen capture software with just the basic functionality of just recording your screen.
And as an added information, I also found out from Microsoft’s website that PowerPoint has also the screen recording features that you can use. I am currently using the Office 365 2016 version but I have never really tried it yet.
I hope these information will help you on your quest to find the screen capture for Windows 10.
