I have posted over many EE questions that some screen recorders or Game capture nolonger function because windows 10 doesn't use Aero so you trick it.

My  purchased Fraps will not capture because of this.
Cam studio works fine for desktop capture.

So since I have 2 systems I rolled one back to windows 7 for this reason Fraps capture. I did buy it why should I have o drop my purchased programs. Fraps say they are working onit.

Please check first before installing new stuff, experts should suggest that you check first as you need to enter this to setup the recording.

I am using it over EE page to show you now
Open a web page then try the Win+G
You need to trick it by setting it up in the Xbox app settings here's how to>
