Screen recording is a handy feature that allows you to capture what's happening on your Samsung device's screen, whether it's for creating tutorials, sharing gameplay, or simply saving memorable moments. Samsung smartphones and tablets come equipped with built-in screen recording functionality, making it easy for users to capture videos of their screen activities without the need for third-party apps.

Step 1: Enable Screen Recording in Quick Settings


1. Swipe down from the top of your Samsung device's screen to open the notification panel.

2. Scroll down to access the Quick Settings menu (it's the panel with various toggle switches like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc).

2. Tap the gear icon in the toolbar to access the settings.

3. In the settings, you can customize various options like video resolution, frame rate, bit rate, and audio source. Adjust these settings according to your preferences. Higher settings will result in better video quality but larger file sizes.

Step 3: Start the Screen Recording
