Record screen for free

Icecream Screen Recorder is a screen capture program developed by Icecream Apps Ltd to empower your screenshots. It is a beneficial addition to your Windows utilities as it allows you to record various multimedia activities such as apps and games, video tutorials, webinars, live streams, Skype calls, and more.

Here, you can opt to capture your whole screen or just a part of it along with its audio and webcam. This service offers a free edition however, it is limited in features and functions which somehow forces you to upgrade it to PRO. 

Feature-packed screen recordings

Icecream Screen Recorder provides you with the option to take an image of a portion of a page or the entire window. Besides such a standard screen capture feature, the real benefit in regards to this option is that you can also record live webinars and streaming videos. Whether referring to Vimeo, Dailymotion, or YouTube, it can accurately capture videos of various formats with the click of a button.

With its powerful PC screen recorder, you will be able to capture full-screen 3D games as well. If there's a certain part that you want to highlight, you can do so through the annotation feature. Using this allows you to add text, arrows, and shapes in your recorded video or screenshot. Furthermore, it serves some necessary editing tools that enable you to trim recordings or change speed.

How do you use Icecream Screen Recorder?

When you launch this utility tool, you immediately notice its two main functions: Capture video and Screenshot. Unlike the traditional screen capture method through the ‘Print Screen’ button on your keyboard, Icecream Screen Recorder provides a more comprehensive approach. It allows you to choose any screenshot area, which is hardly found in the standard way of screen grabbing. Actually, this feature can also be enjoyed when screen recording.

Prior to saving it, you can even customize it to your preference. Using the editing tools it offers, you can mark out, underline, and frame certain parts of your screenshot. While you are recording, on the other hand, you will be able to draw or type on the screen in real-time as well. Your screenshots will be saved as either PNG or JPG images. Meanwhile, your recordings can be easily uploaded to YouTube, Dropbox, and Google Drive

An ingenious screen capture tool

If you intend to capture an image or record screen in order to highlight specific areas, Icecream Screen Recorder is an innovative program. You are allowed to add annotations such as circles, lines, boxes, and arrows. All screenshots are able to be saved directly onto your hard drive and within a destination of your choice. This is a great alternative for the very basic ‘Print Screen’ function.
