How To Screen Capture on Windows 7

Windows 7 is one of the best operating systems that Microsoft ever worked on. After a big failure of Windows Vista, Microsoft had to pick themselves up and do something to get back to being what they are i.e. a company that makes operating system and software that allow common people to be able to use a PC.

Windows 7 came with a whole new look and feel and it was amazing to see the Windows Aero theme on our laptops and desktops. Not only looks, but Windows 7 was great in the features department as well. It came with many improved features and security options that people absolutely loved. Microsoft had fixed all the issues that occurred on Windows Vista, and hence, Windows 7 became a public’s favorite, and this was the first time it was happening after Windows XP. Even to this day i.e. 2015, people are still not willing to switch from Windows 7 as it is one of the best-operating systems Microsoft worked on.

I had to make some tutorials on Windows 7 and hence I was looking for a good software that allowed me to record the screen on Windows 7 and after a lot of searching, I found the best screen recorder for Windows 7.

In this post I am going to tell you how to perform a screen capture on Windows 7 and to do this, we are going to use the software named Movavi Screen Capture Studio. This software allows you to capture your screen in a video, and this works extremely well with Windows 7. Let’s get started with the tutorial.
