Microsoft Stream now allows for screen capture videos

OK… I did NOT know this was coming, but it is *really* cool! You can now use Microsoft Stream to record screen capture videos up to 15 minutes in length. Think of creating your own short training videos where you show something on your screen with narration and everything. Here’s how that works…

When you’re in Microsoft Stream, you can start your screen capture session by selecting Create > Record Screen:

Before the recording starts, you get to choose exactly what you want to be capturing. This could be everything on your screen, a specific application, or a specific tab in Edge. Once you pick what you want to focus on, click Share:

Your screen capture then starts to record. You have 15 minutes to record your video. You can pause temporarily if you need to by clicking the Pause button. Once done with your recording, click Next:
