Need to use Premier Pro (Advanced) to Record Desktop

I am a beginner, but am downloading the Advanced version. Is that a bad idea?

I will need create a video of my desktop, with audio, then edit it.

What are my first steps to record the desktop and create an MP4?

Thanks

Step #1 don't even look at Adobe Premier to record the screen.
Nothing in Creative Cloud does screen captures/recordings, sorry.
You would need to purchase dedicated screen recording software.  I use Camtasia Studio & Snagit from TechSmith.

What about Windows? Anything free there?

Otherwise, I really do much prefer working on the Mac.

I NEED the audio and the video integrated at the point of recording, since I would pull my hair out always needing to marry them.

Do both Snagit and Camtasia record audio too?
