The Snipping Tool app (version 11.2211.35.0) for Windows 11 includes a built-in screen recorder.

You will be able to select and refine the part of your screen that you want to record before starting your screen recording session. When you are finished, you can preview your recording before saving or sharing it with others.

Snipping Tool app version 11.2212.24.0 now includes a pause recording option.

Reference:

This tutorial will show you how to use the Snipping Tool app for screen recording in Windows 11.


Recordings from the Snipping Tool are temporarily cached in the %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.ScreenSketch_8wekyb3d8bbwe\TempState\Recordings folder for the current user.




Here's How:

1 Open the Snipping Tool app.

2 Select Record, and click/tap on New. (see screenshot below)

Only one extra requirement - you have to be one of the blessed A team at the moment.

I have a theory - if you are seen as a person gives negative feedback that might upset the "little darlings", you are permanently placed on the B Team.
