Windows Screen Recording

This article is for Windows users only - if you're on Mac, Chromebook or Linux then check out this article: https://help.glean.co/article/170-mac-chromebooks-linux-screen-recording

On Windows you have the option to record the audio playing through your computer. You can record everything happening on your screen, or from a specific Chrome Tab.

🤔 Note: The option to record from a specific application will not work as you do not get the ability to share your audio.


1

Select your Recording Option:

  • Click the Record button (Recording won't start immediately.)
  • Select Screen Audio

    If you want to capture what you are contributing then pick the option with '& Mic'

Record button drop down showing options 2 and 3. Option 2 Screen Recording only, option 3 Screen Recording and Mic.

Tell Glean what you want to Record:

Once you've selected a Recording Option, a dialog will open:

  1. Select 'Chrome Tab' or 'Your Entire Screen'    
  2. Select the specific tab or screen where your audio, video, or live stream will be played.
    (N.B. even if there is only one tab/screen listed, you have to click to select it!)
  3. Tick the 'Share audio' checkbox (bottom left).
  4. Click 'Share'

  • Ensure the audio source is playing in your selected tab.

Take Your Notes:

  • Navigate back to your Glean tab to start taking notes on the browser audio.
The browser will display a banner stating that you are sharing audio with Glean:

DON'T press STOP on this banner or Glean won't be able to record the audio for you.

  • Take notes as you normally would 😃
