You can set up keyboard shortcuts, or hotkeys, to launch our content creation tools on your Windows PC or Mac. These shortcuts allow you to quickly perform the following actions:
Open the content manager
Start a new screen recording or webcam recording
Screenshot capture an active window or areas of the screen
Screenshot the full screen
Hotkeys work to screenshot both Windows PCs and Macs.
Set up your hotkeys
First, click the app icon.
On a Mac, click the icon () from the menu bar.
Shortcuts can be created using Mac or Windows-specific keys.
On the General tab of Preferences, you have the ability to automatically run our app at startup. Combined with keyboard shortcuts, this is the best way to start recording or launch your screenshot tool right away.
Once you have launched the screen recorder or screenshots, you can save your screenshots and video recordings as you normally would.
