There are many times when recording your Mac screen can come in handy. Maybe you want to create a screencast tutorial.
Perhaps you’re creating a business presentation. Or maybe you’re interested in making video notes for yourself.

How to record your screen on macOS Mojave

Screen recording is a lot simpler in macOS Mojave. You no longer have to rely on QuickTime in order to record screens.
  1. Press Command + Shift + 5 on your keyboard to bring up the screenshot toolbar.
  2. Click either Record Entire Screen or Record Selected Portion. Your recording will begin immediately if you select Record Entire Screen.
  3. Select the portion of the screen you wish to record if you’re only recording a part of it.
  4. Click Record on the screenshot and recording control bar.
  5. Press the Stop button in the Menu bar to stop the recording.
  6. Control-click, right-click, or two-finger-click on the recording that appears in the bottom-right corner of your screen.
  7. Use the contextual menu to choose where to save the screenshot, send it, show it in the Finder, delete it, or mark it up.

To record a video on your Mac:

  1. Open QuickTime
  2. Tap “File” at the top of the display.
  3. Choose “New Screen recording”
  4. Hit record.
  5. You can record the whole screen, or click and drag your mouse cursor to record just a specific part.


  1. The app is installed on your Mac by default, so there are no extra costs or installations.
  2. QuickTime Player offers additional features such as movie and audio recordings.
  3. You can use AirPlay or sharing options immediately from your recorded video.
