A couple of weeks ago you sold a program called File Name editor. On the sales page for that product, you made a video demo that recorded your computer screen. How did you do that?

WOW, I received a lot of questions about that video demo!

Well, today I will share with all of you how we did that. The program we used for creating the on screen recording is called CamStudio and it is completely free! CamStudio is simple to use and it will let you make a recording of anything on your computer screen so you can watch it later or share it with someone else. All you need to do is download CamStudio from this website, install it and then press the record button. Here is what it looks like.


As you can see, it’s a pretty simple interface. Here are a couple tips. First, the program is set up by default to record the entire computer screen. If you want this to change, go to the “region” menu. This will allow you to only record a certain portion of your screen. Second, if you want to record audio too, make sure to go to the options menu and make the necessary changes to the settings. Lastly, just hit the red record button and you will start. After you are done recording, press the blue stop button.

If you would like to see CamStudio in action, you can check out our video demo for File Name Editor by clicking here.

In case you missed it above, here is the link to download CamStudio:

NOTE: The downlaod link is about 1/4 way down the page. Click the link that reads “CamStudio20.exe“.
