Making Screen Recordings with QuickTime on Mac

I am so excited to share how to create a screen recording in QuickTime on your Mac in just a few easy steps AND include a screen casted tutorial on what to do!

1. Open the site or application you want to screen record.

2. Open QuickTime.

3. Go to File  > New Screen Recording.

4.  A new control bar will appear. Select the red circle to begin recording.

5. You will see a pop-up telling you to click to record your entire screen or drag a box around the portion of your screen you want to record.

6. You can now scroll, click, and navigate while you voice over.

7. To end your recording, there is a stop button located on the top right of your main toolbar. The stop button is a square inside a circle. The recorded video will then open so you can view it.

Happy screencasting!
