How to record your screen with both system and microphone audio

Have you ever come across a situation where you need to capture both your microphone and computer/system audio but the screen recorder only lets you record one? We at ScreenApp get the picture very well, which is why we designed our screen recorder to capture them both. Follow along as we take you through a step-by-step process on how you can record your screen with both system and microphone in just a few simple steps.

Step 1

Sign in to your ScreenApp account and click New Recording at the top right-hand corner of the dashboard.


Step 2

Select whether you want to record only your screen or your screen and webcam from the first drop-down menu.


Step 3

Select System audio + Microphone audio from the second drop-down menu.


Step 4

Hit the Share Your Screen button.


Step 5

Select whether you want to record your entire screen, a single application/window or a single tab of your browser. (While ScreenApp provides you with multiple screen recording options, we recommend using the entire screen option every time).


Step 6

Select the Share System Audio checkbox at the bottom, in order to successfully record your system audio and hit Share.

Note: Please note that Mac users won’t be able to see this option as it is selected in default


Step 7

Select Start Recording to begin recording your screen


Step 8

Hit Stop Recording once you are done recording.


Involving such a few steps, you can record your screen with both system and microphone audio using ScreenApp.
