How to record full screen on the computer

As long as a screen recorder is not built into Windows or MacOS by default, you usually need to install additional software for the entire screen capture. Luckily, it's not the only possible solution.

Meet our good old Video Editor with new functionalities, particularly audio, screen, or webcam recording (or even all at once)! As always, all our tools, including this one, work online and don't require any drivers or add-ons. This way, they are fully compatible with most operating systems and device types.

Our Clideo Pro subscribers can record videos up to 60 minutes long, while free and unlogged users are limited to 15 minutes. Whatever mode you choose, you can avail of the full functionality and start as many projects a day as you need.

Let's see how to record the whole screen in three steps.

  1. Open the tool

    Open Clideo’s Video Editor in any browser. Hit the "Get started" button to open the editing pane.

  2. Start full-screen recording on your Mac or PC

    Make sure the browser has access to your microphone (you can check it in the settings tab below the recording screen). This way, you can comment on what is going on.

    Select settings to record entire screen

    When ready, hit the big red circle, choose the "Entire screen" option, and start recording. Switch the toggle "Also share system audio" off if you don't need it.

    Then proceed to record the entire screen. Open and close the windows you need, explain what you are doing, and so on. To stop sharing the screen click "Stop sharing" in a floating pane at the bottom of your screen.

    We recommend choosing the "Add to timeline" option so you can start editing the project right away.

  3. Edit and save the video

    In the Video Editor, you can edit the recording in various ways: cut it into several chunks, remove the excess footage, rotate, speed up or slow down, change its color scheme, etc.
