Windows 7 Problem Steps Recorder

Suppose you are using your Windows 7 machine and experience a problem.  Or suppose you are going through a sequence of steps that you want to relay to someone else.

Why not give the Windows 7 Problem Recorder a try?

You run it by clicking on the Windows button, and typing “record steps”


That will run a process called “psr.exe” which looks like this:


It works rather simply, you click “Start Record” and the program will start capturing screenshots every time you click the mouse, or move a window.

You can Add Comment to what you are doing at any time.

Finally you can click Stop Record and an MHTML file is saved in a zipped folder on your desktop.  Send that file to show what steps you were doing.
