What is Screen Capture Software?

Screen Capture Software, also known as Screen Recording Software, enables users to take screenshots or record video from their personal computer.

Screen capture solutions capture a snapshot of the desktop as an image file (e.g., PNG, JPEG) or as a digital recording of desktop activity. It can capture either be the whole screen or a portion of it. This helps create videos, presentations, tutorials, and demonstrations of what the presenter is viewing on their own screen.

Screen recording software should also have editing and customization features.
