How to record your desktop using Aiseesoft Screen Recorder

Whether you want to produce great tutorials for your readers or fans, record your gameplay to show them your skills, or just show someone a trick, you will need a good screen recorder.

Screen recorder software can be pretty difficult to use and sometimes you will get lost through their settings.

That’s why we’re going to show you an easy way of recording your desktop using a great tool called Aiseesoft Screen Recorder.

How can Aiseesoft Screen Recorder help you to record the screen?

The purpose of Aiseesoft Screen Recorder is pretty obvious from its name but it does a lot more than recording your screen or desktop.

It captures any activity on your PC, including a video call, a webcam, your gameplay and it does all that at exceptional video quality.

For instance, it is very useful for recording a lecture or a presentation, taking snapshots, or even recording your voice.

Moreover, you can highlight the cursor movement during the screen capturing so that viewers can see it a lot better.

The tool comes with a dedicated game recorder that captures the sound from the game and your mic simultaneously.

Plus, it supports GPU acceleration to record the game without lag and webcam overlay for adding a great commentary during the most exciting scenes.

So, the possibilities are only limited by your creativity and, as you will see next, it’s also extremely easy to use.
