Record and capture your screen for free

Movavi Screen Recorder is a screen-capture utility application developed by Movavi Software Limited for desktop. It enables you to capture important webinars and online calls, record essential video instructions and tutorials, and get your favorite streaming videos and online events. This useful tool is both available for a free and a paid version—the package with no charge has feature limitations, as it contains no system sound recording, screenshot editing, and all your output videos will have watermarks in it.

How to record your screen

Recording your screen with this utility tool can be done in a few moments and in just 3 simple steps. First, you must set up your recording parameters by choosing the area you prefer to capture, as well as adjusting your settings. You should then click the "REC" button afterward in order to start recording your desktop. Lastly, with the basic editing tools the app provides, you can begin curating what you have captured to make it even more perfect and then save the file in any format convenient for you. 

On top of the effortless steps to record that it offers, you can also schedule your recording on any time and date you want and even set a time limit for it. Capturing two streams is highly possible with this program and you can also record both screen and audio simultaneously or separately. For a better quality of screen recording, you can add mouse effects and show keystrokes for the best viewing experience.

Furthermore, you can personalize your shortcuts to have more efficient recording controls. Movavi Screen Recorder is safe to install and brings no malware or hacking problems. You can even instantly share all your recorded or captured files in various social and cloud-based storage sites such as YouTube and Google Drive
