On many occasions, it is necessary to record the screen for some devices such as cell phones or tablets that already comes with preinstalled applications, but in this case, we offer software to capture the screen of Windows 10.

What are the best programs to record the screen?

  • Activepresenter

It has practically all the functions and effects that one may need to record the screen and edit videos. You can try all the features of ActivePresenter without any functionality or time restrictions.

  • Windows 10’s built-in Game bar

It is quite possible that this is built into Windows and where it has a pre-installed game bar for anyone who wants to capture their game clips and screenshots.

In case you don’t know how to use it you can follow the steps below:

  1. First you must press WINDOWS+G.
  2. Then select the “Yes, this is a game” check box.
  3. Press the Start/Stop Recording button to start and stop a recording. 
  4. Use the Microphone On/Off button to toggle the microphone on and off if desired.
  5. Finally, you will need to trim your video or rename it in the Xbox application it will be saved in the Captures folder, which by default is in your Videos folder.
  • OBS Studio

This is a free application for video recording and live streaming with no watermark or time limit. While OBS Studio is a versatile application for capturing screenshots, it does not integrate a video editor.

  • Flashback Express

It is a free application that can record screens, webcams, and sounds. Only paid users have the right to save videos as Flash, QuickTime, GIF, or standalone EXE and set up password protection for the videos.

  • Camtasia

It has more than 14 million users worldwide and may never be absent in the top rankings of screen recorders. As an all-in-one screen recorder and video editor, Camtasia claims to “make it easy to record your screen and create polished, professional-looking videos.”

  • Bandicam

It’s very popular as one of the most powerful game recording apps for gamers. While the recording features may please the most demanding users, the software does not have a single video editing feature.

  • Screencast-O-Matic

offers a good number of features ranging from screen recording and video editing to video hosting and sharing. The paid version also comes with full video editing features plus the ability to record computer sound.

  • Icecream Screen Recorder

 This is one of the best options for screen recording as it offers basic video editing functions which makes it easy to handle. Besides not adding a watermark like the free version, the paid version supports scheduled recording, custom watermarking, and cropping functions.


All of them have pros and cons but there are more pros than cons some of the cons are that you will not be able to record or trim the video, no pause function in some of these programs, no built-in video.
