How to Screen Record your PC Using Canva for FREE
Step 1: Open Canva on your Browser
Remember, this can only work on your computer/laptop. Currently, you can’t record on your Mobile phone with Canva as the feature doesn’t support Smartphones yet. Now Open Canva on your browser by visiting canva.com.
Make sure you log In to your Canva account (Free or Paid). Currently, you don’t need a paid version before you can use this feature.
Step 2: Create a Document Video Format
Before you can start recording your screen, you need to set up your document or Canvas to enable you to record your screen. You can do this in two different ways, either by clicking on the “Video section” available in the “You might try” section if you scroll or look on your screen a little.
If you can’t find it on your screen the second method will definitely help you get it done.
The Second method is also very simple, you need to click on “Create a Design” and search for Video.
Step 3: Recording your Screen With Canva
Finally, you have set up your document successfully, now it’s time to record your screen with Canva. Follow the steps listed below;
- Click on the Upload section (located on the left panel)
- You should see a “Record yourself” button.
- Tap on it.
- Before you can start recording, you need to select your Camera and Microphone.
- Also, allow permission on your browser so it works properly.
- There’s an option to select either Camera only or screen sharing.
- After choosing the screen sharing option, we have 3 different options. “Entire Screen”, “Window”, “Chrome Tab”.
- Select anyone you wish then proceed.
- Now you can start recording your screen and if you want to save the recording you can click on the “Save and Exit” option.
Additionally, you can choose to crop the entire video that was produced. And some Frames can accommodate that video as well!
You can edit the video right on Canva without having to leave Canva for another software, but for professional video editing, I always recommend Adobe Premiere Pro.
Canva is a fantastic free graphic creation tool for both amateurs and experts. I sincerely hope that this guide was helpful in teaching you how to record your computer screen in Canva and make the most of it.
