Windows 10 comes with the built-in screen and audio recorder utility, the Xbox Game Bar. It however does not allow users to select region to record or record multiple windows or apps at the same time. It captures the current active window instead. There are many third-party screen recorders offer us more control. Movavi Screen Recorder and Aisee Screen Recorder are two of the best. Compared two those free screen recorders, they are more powerful and easier to use. In this post, we will show you how to get screen and computer sound recorded quickly using Movavi Screen Recorder for Windows.

Download and install the screen recorder for Windows on your PC. Launch the screen recorder on your laptop or desktop computer. Click on the Recording icon and draw an area with your mouse.

If you want also to capture audio from your Microphone or computer speaker, click the Microphone and/or Speaker icon to enable or disable the audio recording from your Mic and/or computer sound card.
