I use WMCapture since years and made hundreds of tutorials with it.

For short tutorials (up to 10 minutes), you can also use the Expression Recorder 4. That produces top quality. The pro version without a time restriction is $199 though. For that recorder you need a lot of CPU muscle on your system because the encoder needs it. At least an i7 is recommended.

If the tutorials are independent of the OS, you could use Linux Mint Mate. That has a very good free recorder. I run it from a USB3 stick and here is an example of a recording. If that is an option, post back and I let you know how to go about it.

I know that IceCream Screen Recorder has a cursor highlighting and as far as I understood you can set the limit of free disk space and file size but as for the length there are no limitations

I think you should try "Tanida Demo Builder". But it's commercialware tool which will cost you a hundred and 49$. You can try its free demo version (15-day trial).


You can use "BSR Screen Recorder" & you may find it here " www."

Highlight cursor and unlimited recording time remind me of Apowersoft Free Online Screen Recorder. In its recording settings, there is an option for highlighting mouse cursor. And it has no recording time limit.

Update: the Microsoft Expression Recorder 4 is free now. Microsoft no more charges a fee. That is probably one of the best recorder you can find if you want quality output..It is not fancy, but efficient.

If you want to try it, Here is a little tutorial I made to get you started.

I use the full version of Bandicam, full version costs $39 (one PC license).
Check the quality of my (edited) video's on YouTube, see my signature.
Play the video's in 1080p or YouTube will ruin my work !

Highlighting the cursor is an option.
