A computer screen recorder is an incredibly diverse tool.
There isn’t a department that wouldn’t benefit from a desktop screen recorder! Seriously. Sales can create impressive pre-recorded demos and video introductions to help convert prospects.
Marketing departments can show off new services or products by sharing a screen recording video in a video email campaign.
And a customer support representative can record a screen recording video when troubleshooting with customers to provide outstanding customer support.
Okay, so you’re convinced that a desktop video capture is a nifty tool to have, but where do you get one? I’m so glad you asked.
In this article, I’ll show you where to get a free computer screen recorder to test out for yourself and how you and your team can create high-quality, action-driven video messages, all from a desktop video recorder.
How to Record a Computer Screen for Free with Covideo’s Trial
So, how to record a computer screen for free is simply when you sign up for a Covideo free trial.
Wait! Before you think, “Oh great, another free trial where I’ll have to add my credit card, and I won’t get access to all the features.”
Wrong! Covideo doesn’t require a credit card, and you get access to ALL our unique features.
But let’s rewind.
For those unfamiliar with Covideo, it’s a video emailing platform that allows professionals to record, upload, share, and track their video messages from their computer and smartphone.

Now that you have an idea of how Covideo’s computer screen video recorder works, let’s jump into how to sign up for a free trial and create action-driven video messages with your screen record for pc or mac.
Go to Covideo.com and sign up for a 7-day free trial account. No credit card is required! Once you create your username and password, you can log into your account and start recording.
You’ll have three option:
In this blog, I’ll focus on the “Screen Only” and “Screen + Cam,” but feel free to test our “Cam Only” option too!
Recording with “Screen Only” will capture your audio and your entire screen. When I’m not creating blogs like this one, I help customers troubleshoot.
The “Screen Only” is extremely useful when demonstrating a new feature, providing a solution for a troubleshooting issue, and reporting bugs to our development team.
Our other option is “Screen + Cam” which, yep you guessed it, will record your entire screen plus yourself. Also very useful in customer support, but I’ll talk about some other types of videos with this computer screen recorder option.
Many of us, and our customers, work remotely. Giving in-person presentations aren’t the same, so record your own PowerPoint, demo, or website tour is the next best thing. By including yourself in the screen recording, you’re putting a face to your name and you will stand out from your competitors.
Don’t just take my word for it though, schedule a demo to learn more about our video emailing platform and ask our video experts about screen recorders for your department.
