- Snipping Tools can now record your screen on Windows 11.
- The update is available now in the Dev Channel.
- Microsoft isn’t saying when it’ll release or whether it’ll include audio recording support.
Microsoft is updating its screenshot-taking application, Snipping Tool, on Windows 11 with the ability for screen recording. The new feature is available starting with the Spinning Tool version 11.2211.35.0 and higher releases.
The company notes that the screen recording feature is initially available for Windows 11 devices enrolled in the Dev Channel of the Windows Insider Program.
Once the update arrives on your device, you will notice a new “Record” button in the Snipping Tool interface. According to Microsoft, “you will then be able to select and refine the part of your screen that you want to record before starting your screen recording session.”
In addition, when you are finished, you can preview the recording before saving or sharing it. However, the company isn’t saying if the screen recording will also include the ability to capture audio.
The company is rolling out the update slowly, which means that it’ll take time to become available for every Insider. However, you can always check for updates on the Microsoft Store’s Library page.
Furthermore, Microsoft notes that this particular build has a few known issues, such as a delay when you start the screen recording and when switching between recording and snipping.
