As earlier reported, there was an indication that Microsoft was working on a screen recording feature for the Windows 11 Snipping Tool. And now the company has revealed that it has started rolling out the feature, though this release is controlled as only Windows Insiders will be able to access it for now.

The screen recording feature ships to the Windows 11 in-built tool in the form of an update, coming in at version 11.2211.35.0, which you can download via the Microsoft Store. The Snipping Tool already provided users with a quick and simple way to capture screenshots and share them on their devices, with this newly added feature you will now be able to record your screen in Windows 11 easily.

You’ll no longer need to use third-party applications or the Xbox Game Bar to screen record. In order to make use of this neat feature, you must first be part of the Windows Insider program, and your device must be running on the latest build. However, some Insiders may not access it immediately as the roll out process just began, though it will be availed gradually.

When using this feature while it is in preview, you might encounter a couple of issues, For instance, there might be a slight delay when you click Start and when the tool actually begins the recording process. And finally, the Snipping Tool app window might fail to restore when you try to initiate a new snip directly from the app.

If you have early access to this feature, Microsofts invites you to share your thoughts and experiences with this feature in the Snipping Tool via the Feedback Hub. Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
