Microsoft is rolling out a screen recording tool within the Snipping Tool in Windows 11. Here’s how to make use of it.
Windows 11 Snipping Tool has been one of the most used used Microsoft OS features. Now, it has become even more useful as Microsoft has rolled out a Windows 11 recording tool within the Windows 11 Snipping Tool. Till now, whenever recording was to be done, users had to rely on third-party tools, which was not always the best solution. It was a time-consuming and complex process. However, much to the relief Windows 11 users, Microsoft has now rolled out an interesting feature that will let you record the screen with your Snipping Tool only! Yes, you read that right! Windows 11 Snipping Tool is turning into a Screen Recording tool too now.
“Hello Windows Insiders, today we are beginning to roll out an update to the Snipping Tool app (version 11.2211.35.0) for Windows 11 to Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel. We are just beginning the roll out now so not all Insiders in the Dev Channel will receive the update right away,” Dave Grochocki, Principal Product Manager Lead said in a blog post. “We know that Snipping Tool is a favorite among the Insider community, so we are very excited to introduce a built-in screen recorder with this update!”
Snipping Tool has always made it quick and easy for Windows users to capture and share content without any hassles. Now, with the addition of a screen recording feature in the same application, Microsoft is expanding these capabilities to include even more types of content.
How to use Snipping Tool as video recording tool
Microsoft explained that to get started, you will need to open the Snipping Tool app.
Then, select the new record option.
This will give you the option to select and refine the part of your screen that you want to record before starting your screen recording session.
