    Screen Capture Software (video)

    I'm looking for a basic, simple application to capture screen action and save to a video file.
    Does anyone have any recommendations that will work with Windows 10?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Thanks, RG...I notice it has not been updated for 2 years, have you tried it on Win 10?

    Trev,

    No I haven't. I haven't done that type of screen recording for a few years.

    It may be possible to use Win+G (depending on your video hardware):

    Thanks for that, certainly works and the only issue was that on testing it, it produced a large file size (mp4).
    Apparently there are settings to adjust in the Xbox app, but that is long gone from my machine.

    CamStudio is free and open source. See http://camstudio.org/

    Win+G sounds hard to beat for ease of startup, but for more options, CamStudio is flexible with respect to:
    * capture region - full screen, a defined region, a selected window, etc.
    * file format and compression options
    * you have control over audio and its source
    * you can annotate the screen

    Have you used it with Windows 10?
