Once you Launch Live Screen Capture you can set the parameters to capture what you are looking for. First, you need to define the area of your screen to record. You can select full screen (default at launch), a select window you have open, or a highlight to define a custom area of your screen and adjust the area manually by pulling on the edges of the frame.

4. Customize your screen recording settings

Next, we expand the settings menu to define your file name and location, audio settings, mouse click animations and more. By default, the program captures both your microphone/voiceover sound + your system audio. You can enable or disable these, or connect an external microphone to record from. If you connect an external microphone, select ‘Sound Check’ to identify the device. In the settings menu, you can also identify the frame rate, file format, and enable or disable mouse click animations in your recording.
