Say you want to capture something on your Mac screen – but the screen image simply will not do it. You need something more dynamic, or you may need to show subtle changes or simply want to save video without having trouble downloading.
That's when the shots on the screens help us.
Fortunately, they are also easy to reach on the Mac. All you need is the QuickTime Player application (which is Apple's product, so you do not have to worry about downloading anything.)
Here's how to do it:
How to display records on any Mac computer
1. Click on the finder in your port (located at the bottom of your screen).
2. Click the Applications tab in the left sidebar.
3. Double-click on QuickTime Player to start (Note: Nothing will appear, but the application's logo will appear on the location of your Mac).
4. Go to "File" in the toolbar at the top of your screen.
5. Press "Shoot a new screen" (this will prompt you to see a new recording window).
6. Optional: If you want to record a sound, also (using the internal microphone on your computer), you click on the carrot down, which is next to the circular, white-red recording button.
7. Click on the capture button.
8. To save everything, click anywhere on the screen; or, if you want to capture a certain part of your screen, click and drag the box around the appropriate part, and then click the "Start Recording" button (Note: the recording window will disappear from your screen after you start recording)
9. To complete the recording, click the thumbnail icon at the top left of the toolbar at the top of the screen (it will look like a gray square inside the circle)
After you have finished recording, a new video window will appear on the screen. If you click on the red "close" button in the upper left corner of the window, you will be asked to save it (this is where you can name the recording and change its location on your computer) or, if you are not happy with that can always be deleted and try again.
