    I finally got the video after a few tries, but there is no audio. You didn't mention audio in your tutorial, so I wonder if there is something I need to do to record the audio along with the video on the screen. Without the audio, this has only limited value. At least if I record it with the phone, I will have the audio as well as the video. I'm sure I missed something. Thanks.

    Lynn: Right, there is the option to record from the microphone (you can see it in the video when I click on Options). But recording audio directly from the computer requires more than this. Most of the time if you are recording the screen for support or to demonstrate something, no audio is needed except maybe your own voice narrating.

    Gary -- This is the first 1 minute posting I've seen. It's a great idea to remind us of simple useful tips. I hope you will do more.

    Thanks Gary. In a future video it would be super useful to show how best to record your screen, with audio PLUS a mini live video of the presenter (as you did in this and other videos. I currently do it by setting up a Zoom call with just myself and then record it. But it is not as slick as your method. These are really useful for when submitting an online presentation. Thanks.

    Bob: To do that, use ScreenFlow. It records camera and screen in separate tracks that can be edited independently. That's how I make my tutorials.
