As its name suggests, ZD Soft Screen Recorder is a small software tool that can record your computer screen activity.
Besides that, it can also take screenshots. It has an extremely easy-to-use basic interface, which is very similar to a ribbon and has only five buttons. Therefore, with just clicking on the Start Recording or Take Screenshot buttons, you can easily record a video or grab a still picture of your screen.

However, no matter how simple it may seem at first sight, there is a lot more hidden under the Expand Settings button, which will allow you to customize your output file so that it meets your exact needs.

Several screen capture modes are available. For instance, you can capture a region, a window or the entire screen. What is more, this tool lets you capture images from a game screen, which is quite impossible with many other applications of the same type. Likewise, the three popular video formats as AVI, MP4 and MKV, are supported as output. Similarly, it can take screenshots in the PNG, BMP and JPG formats.

Fortunately, this application can record not only images but sounds as well. Therefore, it can capture sound directly from your computer's output and also from a microphone. Moreover, the recorded audio can be either saved together with the video or as a separate file.

It is also worth saying that ZD Soft Screen Recorder can also capture video using a web cam. Among other features, it allows previewing the webcam image and including webcam overlays in videos. When not in use, the program can be executed from the System Tray and with the help of the Timer function, you can schedule recording at a specific time.

In general, ZD Soft Screen Recorder can be recommended to those needing to record from the computer screen, something that may turn out to be useful when using those captures to create some types of tutorials. In addition, it can also help those who want to record their game sessions. It definitely has the advantage of being very easy to use. However, you should be aware that there are much more powerful similar applications out there.

Guest In the previous version, I was able to put my recording in the folder I've selected. Now only on the C: drive. I don't have the opportunity to put it into a specific folder.
Could you explain that?
