While screen recording is nowadays an easy thing to do, it’s not a straightforward process on your smartphone, as there isn’t any Windows 10 Mobile apps that you can use to record your phone’s screen. However, Microsoft has a simple solution that involves projecting your phone screen to your PC where you can then use any screen recording software to create a screencast of a new feature of the operating system or a tutorial of a new app. In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to start a recording of your Windows 10 Mobile handset — steps that will also work with any Windows Phone 8.1 device.

How to screen record your Windows 10 Mobile phone

Once you have completed your screen recording, you can easily share the video with friends or you can upload the recording to YouTube or another online video service.

Project My Screen has been around for several years. In fact, the app is a two-part solution, which is already on your phone since Windows Phone 8.1, which is why you only need to install the app on your PC and your phone will detect and prompt you to allow screen projection automatically . In addition, remember that you are not limited only to screen recordings, the Project My Screen app is also a great tool you can use to demo new features and even a mobile app during a meeting at work.
