    How do you film your PC screen

    As you are moving the mouse, etc, as seen in tutorial videos?

    Is it possible to do this in a way similar to the print screen button for screenshots?

    Cheers

    Here's one way... Snagit...

    http://www.techsmith.com/

    It's a popular program and will make a movie of what's on your screen or part of it.

    Here are some more..

    I'm not aware of any freeware that does it unfortunately but maybe someone else here is.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    There has never been freeware to do this, unfortunately. I have spent a long time looking.

    Lightbulb Its free

    Goto windows update and install the
    windows media encoder 9.

    This will allow you to make movies of your desk top.

    I make movies with it all of the time.

    If you are doing demo on using software, make sure to start the application before starting the encoder, it takes alot of resources.

    There are electronic setups that connect to your VGA port but they are expensive.

    Once installed look under windows media, encoder.

    I have attached a really low res movie.
