Microsoft Adds New Screen Recording to Windows 11 Snipping Tool


Your favorite OS Microsoft is adding a new built-in screen recorder feature to Windows 11. You can easily access this screen recorder feature using the snipping tool. With this tool, you can capture videos on the desktop without using any kind of third-party application.

The new update is being applied as a phased roll-out to Windows Insiders in Dev Channel. This new feature will be available on the device once version 11.2211.35.0 of the snipping tool is installed on the device.

Your Windows Insider should open the application and then click on the record option on the top to use this new feature on the device. The Inbox Apps Principal Product Manager Leader Dave Grochocki quotes “You will then be able to select and refine the part of the screen that you want to record before starting the screen recording session”. “Once you finish recording, you can preview the recording before saving or sharing it.” Microsoft is also aware of the issue that this new function might impact the user experience for those users who are already using this feature.

Some users might face a delay between when they hit the Start button and when the screen recording actually starts. Few users can notice that the tool app window might fail to restore after using the new snip within the application.

The snipping tool is available in the inbox app that is installed by default in Windows. Due to this, all the users can access this feature without installing any additional program from Microsoft. In case you are working on Windows 11 Develop build but still unable to use screen recording then wait for a while as the feature will slowly roll out.

The widgets board removed sign-in requirements

On Friday, Redmond announced that the Windows 11 widget board will be functional even if the user has not signed into the account. The change is rolling out to Insiders in Dev Channel running the Insider Preview Build 25262. Amanda Llangowshi and Brandon said “In the recent update for Widgets, we are removing the sign-in requirement making it available for all users. Now users can get weather updates on the taskbar, pin widgets from fav apps, or access personalized dynamic feed without an account.”

The company also addressed the issue of File Explorer as it would enter a crash loop if the Widget app package went missing after upgrading to Build 25252. Along with Media Player version 11.2211.34.0, Windows Insiders can also browse the video library by folder.
