A screen recording capability for the Windows 11 Snipping Tool might be coming soon.

In October at the Surface event, Microsoft teased the release of a brand-new Snipping Tool. With a new screen recorder capability, the brand-new Snipping Tool in Windows 11 is much more than just a style update. And right now, it appears that Microsoft will soon make available a new Snipping Tool that also has the capacity to record screens.

You can take screenshots in any format you desire using Windows 11’s Snipping Tool. One of the main complaints, though, was that you couldn’t record your screen. Microsoft appears to have taken note of this and could soon make the capability available to Windows 11 users. The screen recording function was discovered by SubjunctiveQuaver, a Reddit user.

Users will be able to change from Snip mode to Record mode simply clicking the Record button, according to the screenshot that the user uploaded. The + New button should then be selected in order to choose a specific area of the screen. Following that, click the Start button to initiate a countdown before the screen recording starts. To end the recording, press the Stop button on the overlay menu.

The Snipping tool playback menu will open with all screen recording files, allowing you to view and save them. From this point, you can start a new Snip and a new screen capture as well. Snipping Tool version 11.2211.11.0 or later and Windows 11 are also need for these features.

We do not yet know when Windows 11 users will be able to utilise the new Snipping Tool, though. It will be intriguing to watch if it appears in the Windows 11 “Moment 2” update, which is anticipated to release in February of 2019.

How frequently do you use Windows 11’s Snipping Tool? And what programme do you now employ to capture screen activity? Post a comment and let us know.
