Summary: How to choose a screen recorder
We hope you found these reviews helpful. This section summarizes the most important things to consider when choosing a screen recorder for Windows 7.
Price: Some screen recorders are free, and others offer both free and paid versions. If you want a free app, make sure it has the features you need. Does it restrict things like recording times and the number of allowed recordings? Consider another app or the PRO version if it falls short, especially if it offers a free trial period.
Graphical User Interface (GUI): No one ever complains that a screen recorder is too easy to use. Make sure the interface is intuitive, uncluttered, and has a gentle learning curve. At the same time, check that the GUI has everything you need.
Screen recording options: What do you need to capture? Some tools only record specific areas while others capture the entire screen or both. Also, check that the app offers audio recording as well if that's important to you.
Editing tools: Check that the program has editing tools if that matters to you. Some apps offer basic editing like join, trim, and crop. Others have built-in editors or no tools at all.
Save and share: Can you save your files in the formats you need? If you plan to share your captures, make sure you can upload them directly to platforms like Google Drive, YouTube, etc.
