My Screen Recorder 5.0

Recording a particular Area of Your Desktop Screen

My Screen Recorder captures your PC desktop activity into standard WMV or AVI video files.  It records everything you see on the computer screen, including the entire desktop, windows, menus, cursors - even video with sound.  There are many occasions where you may want to record the activity within an application window.  Recording the activity within a single window has many advantages.

  • The viewer is focused on what you are trying to present.
  • Privacy of your full desktop is maintained.

Using this feature, you can produce files that communicate more powerfully.  With proper recording settings, these files can also be smaller, using less storage space and Internet bandwidth.

Just follow the steps below to record only a part of the Windows desktop:

Step 1: Use the Region Feature

  • After launching Deskshare My screen Recorder, Click on Region feature to choose the dimension of the screen to record
  • Select a Custom Region Feature and click on record button.
  • As soon as you start recording, a crosshair appears on the screen.
