Fraps - How to record a video of your desktop?




Fraps is not limited to the recording of video games. You can use this software to record a video of your desktop or application window too. But it should be noted that this tip only works with Windows 7 and Vista integrating the Aero desktop feature.

To enable this option:
  • Open Fraps.
  • Go to the "General tab".
  • Check "Monitor Aero desktop (DWM)".
  • Start recording your videos by pressing the dedicated hotkey.
