Are you looking to record your screen on your Windows 10 computer, but you’re unsure of the tools you’ll need to accomplish that?

We’ve done the research for you for and found the best of the best, so you don’t have to! Watch the video below for all the details.

Overall, there were 3 that were the best in terms of use and price. One of them you already have on your Windows 10 computer, and may not even know it!

Here’s a breakdown of the 3 best screen recording software on Windows 10:

Windows 10 Game Recorder (Free)

While technically meant for gaming, the built-in screen recording tool in Windows 10 still can be used to record your screen if you’re looking to make a quick and simple video, and don’t feel like spending the money.

Key features include:

  • Very quick/easy to record (note, does makes you login to Microsoft Xbox Live account in order to trim/edit/share)
  • Records directly as an MP4 file on your computer that you can use and share (other programs record to a proprietary file format then make you render into the final deliverable file, usually an MP4)
  • Note: Xbox live software doesn’t make it easy to share – most of the features built for games

Here’s a video tutorial we found on using the built-in recorder.

Snagit ($50)

If you’re looking for something  with more features, TechSmith’s Snagit might be a good option. For $50, you can create some great screen recording content using just the tools and features you need.

Key features include:

  • Very helpful tutorial video from TechSmith
  • Great for taking screenshots (images) and adding notations
  • Trim video clips for simple editing
  • Export to many places

Key features include:

  • Pretty robust editing tool compared to every other screen capturing software
  • You can export as SCORM compliant elearning files
  • And just about anything else you could possibly think of
