How to Record Your Mac's Screen


It's pretty easy to make a recording of your screen on a Mac. All you need to do is run Apple’s own QuickTime - which comes pre-installed on every Mac - and use the screen recording feature that’s already baked in. It also lets you select audio input sources, if you want to record a voice-over instead of just the on-screen contents.

How to record the screen on Mac*

  1. Launch QuickTime Player from your applications.
  2. Click on File > New Screen Recording
  3. A small recording control panel pops up, and you can simply click the red Record button to start recording the screen of your Mac.
    If you prefer, you can tweak some options before you start recording. Click the small arrow pointing downwards next to the record button. Here you can choose to show mouse clicks in the recording, and which microphone to use for audio. You can choose none if you just want to record the contents of your screen, but if you want to add some spoken instructions, you could choose the internal mic, or an external mic if one is plugged in.
  4. Once you start recording, you'll see a tip telling you to click to start recording, or drag a window to record only that part of the screen. You can choose whichever suits your needs on that front.
You can then preview the video, and save it.
  1. Click the stop button in the menu bar (the bar at the top of your Mac’s screen) on the recording control panel when you're done.
