Screen recording is a great way to capture what’s happening on your computer screen and use it in your own videos or presentations. Here, we’ll show you how to do screen recording on your MacBook using two different methods: the built-in method and the third-party app method.
What is screen recording?
Screen recording is a feature on many laptops and desktop computers that enables you to record what is on your screen. You can then play the recording back, edit it, or share it with others. Screen recordings can be helpful for making instructional videos, capturing your computer’s activity while you are working, or just documenting what you are doing.
How to do screen recording on a MacBook
If you’re looking to capture your screen while working on a laptop, there are a few different methods you can use.
One way is to use the built-in screen recording function on your MacBook. This allows you to record your current screen as a video file. To start screen recording, open the Window menu and select Screen Recording from the options. You’ll then be prompted to choose a recording format and start recording.
If you want to save your recorded video file locally on your computer, you can do so by selecting File > Save As from the Screen Recording window. You’ll then be able to name the file and choose where to save it.
If you want to share your recorded video with others, you can export it as an MP4 file by selecting File > Export from the Screen Recording window. In the Export dialog box, you’ll have the option to add a title and description for the video, as well as set a duration for it. Once you’ve finalized your settings, click Export to begin exporting your video.
How to stop screen recording on your MacBook
If you’re like most people, you probably use your MacBook to record your screencasts or videos. But if you want to stop screen recording on your MacBook, there are a few things you can do.
To start, open System Preferences and click on the Security & Privacy icon. In the window that pops up, click on the Screen Recording tab. Here, you’ll see a list of apps that are currently allowed to screen record. To disable screen recording for an app, just select it and press the Disable button.
If you want to be able to screen record without disabling any apps, you’ll need to use Terminal. Open Terminal by pressing Command+T and enter the following command: sudo glyde -screenrecord . This will enable screen recording for all applications running on your system.
Either way, it’s important to know how to stop screen recording on your MacBook if you ever want to stop using it.
If you’re like most people, you probably use your MacBook for work and play. And while it’s great to be able to do both at the same time, sometimes you need to take a break and record a screencast or video.
