This article describes the steps to record your screen with the Snipping Tool app in Windows 11.
Windows 11 has a new Snipping Tool app that replaces the classic Snip & Sketch app in previous versions for taking screenshots. The classic Snip & Sketch and the new Snipping Tool apps can be launched using the keyboard shortcut Windows key + Shift + S.
The latest version of the Snipping Tool app now has a new record option. Instead of simply capturing screenshots, you can select and refine the part of your screen that you want to record and start recording.
When you are finished, you can preview your recording before saving or sharing it with others.
As of now, it’s not available to all Windows devices. However, the latest Snipping Tool app (version 11.2211.35.0) is available for Windows 11 devices enrolled in the Windows Insiders in the Dev Channel.
