On the web, you can find a screen recording tool that allows you to capture your screen. The downside is that it can be slow and it has a lot of glitches. You may have to retry accessing the screen recording tool several times until you successfully record the screen. If you want to use an online screen recorder, you will need to install the latest Adobe flash player on your computer.

Most of the online screen recorders only work on the Windows platform so the app will not launch if you are on other platforms like Linux. Some of these sites also require you to sign up for an account before giving you access to the online screen recorder. After you finish recording, you must download the screencast to your computer. Since you are using free online screen recorder, your video may have a watermark of the site.

With a desktop screen recorder, the recording is smooth with no glitches since you don’t require internet to record the screen. Usually, it has a control panel where you can find all the main controls for the screen recording session.

You can also access the screen recorder functions with keyboard shortcuts. These shortcuts can be customized in the settings to the keys that you are used to. You can adjust the record frame by selecting one of the preset or dragging the corner with your mouse cursor. Many screen recorder software is integrated with basic video editing tools, like trimmer for deleting the unwanted scene in front or end of the movie.

Below the keyboard shortcuts, you can check the start/stop record shortcut to allow you to use a keyboard shortcut to start/stop the screencast recording. In addition, also slide the recorded audio toggle to so that audio recording will be enabled.
