Windows 11 is Getting a Native Screen Recorder

It seems like it’s been ages since Microsoft announced that it will be adding a native screen recorder for its Windows 11 operating system. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Microsoft has finally started rolling this feature out for Windows 11 users. There have been third party screen recorders that people could use, but in spite of the fact that this is the case the lack of a native recording software was seen as a weak point by many users.

The recordings can now be made from the app for the Snipping Tool. Incidentally, this is also the app that users can use if they want to take screenshots without third party software. The lack of recording functionality in this app was curious to say the least, but the long awaited addition of this feature will be warmly received by most if not all users who have switched over to Windows 11 with all things having been considered and taken into account.

The Snipping Tool app now has a separate section that is entirely devoted to screen recording. Users can also select the area of the screen that they want to record a video of which is useful because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up limiting the amount of editing that they would have had to do. With editing being less necessary, users might be able to extract more value from this feature than might have been the case otherwise.

However, Microsoft has mentioned that there will be a few issues with this new feature at first. Some users might notice a small duration between them clicking on the Start button and the record actually beginning in earnest. We are hoping that Microsoft will fix these problems in the future, and they likely hastened the launch without ironing this issue out so that they could get it to consumers without further delay. Most new features have a few hiccups, but the screen recorder is a welcome addition to Windows 11 nonetheless.
