This article demonstrates how to screen record in Windows 11 with audio. All Windows 11 versions are compatible with the instructions.
Ways to Record With Audio in Windows 11
The Xbox Game Bar is a built-in feature for recording programmed in Windows 11. You can record the system audio from your computer as well as external audio from a microphone in addition to the screen.
Unfortunately, the Xbox Game Bar cannot be used to record your desktop or Windows File Explorer. You’ll need to employ a different technique to do it. The screen recorder in Microsoft PowerPoint, the VLC video player, and a number of third-party screen capture programmed are other alternatives.
How to Record Your Screen With the Xbox Game Bar
The Xbox Game Bar is by far the simplest technique for screen recording with audio because it is already installed on your Windows 11 computer:
- Search for Xbox Game Bar on your keyboard or press Windows key + g to launch the programmed.
- Choose the Capture icon in the toolbar at the top of the screen if you don’t see the Capture window in the upper-left corner.
- Choose Capturing on the left side of the Settings window after selecting the Settings gear in the top toolbar.
- Choose All under Audio to Record to record all system noises or Game to record only audio from the app.
After finished, press Esc on the keyboard to close the Xbox Game Bar and close the Settings window.
- Start the app or game you wish to record. You can either open the Xbox Game Bar and choose the Record button in the Capture window, or you can press the Windows key+Alt+R keyboard shortcut.
- Your screen is being recorded, as shown by the recording window appearing in the top-right corner of the screen. Use the Windows key+Alt+R or the Stop button to end the recording.
- To review your recordings, choose the pop-up notification or launch the Xbox Game Bar.
- The Xbox Game Bar Gallery will display your recording. To access the file, choose Open file location (the default place for screen recordings is C:UsersUsernameVideosCaptures).
How to Record Your Screen With PowerPoint
Using Microsoft PowerPoint’s screen recorder is an additional choice. To utilize the functionality, you must have a Microsoft 365 subscription.
- Choose Media > Screen Recording from the Insert tab in a blank presentation.
- Choose Area in the screen recorder panel, then click and drag over the region you want to record.
- To start the recording, select Record.
- Choose Stop or click the Windows Key+Shift+Q after you’re done recording.
- The slide will show your recording. To save the video as an MP4 file, right-click it and choose Save Media as.
Other Ways to Screen Record With Audio
There are various third-party screen recorder software that contain capabilities for editing videos, such as Snagit, Screenshot Captor, and ShareX. For instance, you can extract particular frames and produce GIFs using Snagit.
