Screen Recording tools are quite useful if you have to record a video tutorial to post on YouTube or even record online classes.
Unfortunately most recording tools are premium softwares, and you have to pay quite a bit to use them. And not all free recorders are good, some have limitations like watermarks or advertisements.
Luckily for you, we are giving away free licenses for Apowersoft Screen Recorder Pro. This is a multipurpose tool, which can record screen activity ,videos of game play, streaming videos, capture screenshots, convert/edit videos, and record audio.
The application's interface is simple, in fact too simple and a bit dated. You can click on the Start button on the UI to begin the video capture.
You can capture videos in various resolutions. Move your mouse cursor and draw a rectangle to capture the area which it covers. I am not going to go deep into the options in this review, there are various shapes you can draw and capturing options to choose from, for example: around the mouse, full screen, etc. You can also choose to record the audio only.
You can also record videos using the taskbar icon.
There are a few keyboard shortcuts which will help you while capturing videos.

F7 – Stops recording.
Ctrl+Alt+E – Toggle the Control Bar.
