Soon, Windows users may use the Snipping Tool on Windows 11 to record a video of the screen. Microsoft is testing the functionality currently in Insider Builds. News that Microsoft is working on screen capturing functionality for its Snipping Tool leaked during the Surface Event of 2022. Microsoft shared the information in a video reel, but did not confirm it explicitly at the time.

Now, select Windows Insider users may test the screen recorder feature on Windows 11 Insider machines. Microsoft added a new Quest that asks testers to test the new functionality of the screen recorder and, if possible, provide feedback on the functionality.

The prerequisites for the test are Windows 11 and Snipping Tool version 11.2211.11.0 or later. The latest release version of the Snipping Tool has a slightly lower version than that.
