Create recordings of your desktop activities or capture the gameplay of gaming applications with the suite supporting both HD and SD video quality. Audio capture with the sound card is enabled by default. A hotkey is assigned for taking snapshots of the screen.

Action! is more than just a video recording utility. This program also enables you to take screenshots, live stream gameplay and desktop activity to popular services, record webcam or USB/HDMI capture devices, and so much more.

You can use this tool for recording game walkthroughs, making tutorials for programs you created or capturing video conferences for later.

The program gives you access to a wide range of output settings (for both recording and live streaming), doesn't require advanced video manipulation experience, and provides you with plenty of useful instructions.

In my testing, I used the program to record a video tutorial and to take a screenshot, each type of task completed with various sets of output options. Action! immediately offered me quality results, without slowing down the performance other running tools.

My only problem with this utility is the fact that, compared to other screen recording tools, it supports a very small amount of output formats. Still, the output quality is excellent and the supported output formats are pretty popular.

In conclusion, I'd say it's worth giving Action! a try if you're looking for an efficient and easy-to-use desktop recording tool for your Windows PC.
