How to Record on Mac: A Step-by-Step Guide

If you’re an avid Mac user, you may have wondered how to record your screen. Maybe you want to create a tutorial or share a presentation with colleagues. Whatever your reason, recording your screen on a Mac is easier than you might think.

To get started, press Command + Shift + 5 on your keyboard. This will turn your mouse pointer into a camera icon and bring up a screen recording menu at the bottom of your screen. From there, you can select whether you want to record the entire screen or a specific area.

Once you’ve made your selection, you can adjust the area you want to capture by pressing down the mouse left button and drawing a box around it. You can also choose where you want your recording saved and whether you want to include audio or not.

When you’re ready to start recording, simply click on the record button. A stop button will appear in the menu bar at the top of your screen, letting you know that the recording is in progress. When you’re done, click on the stop button to save the recording.

The recording will be saved as a thumbnail at the bottom of your screen and eventually to your desktop with a default name. You can watch it anytime you want or share it with others.

That’s all there is to it! Recording your screen on a Mac is a simple process that can be done in just a few clicks. So, whether you’re creating a tutorial or sharing a presentation, give it a try and see how easy it can be.
