IceCream Screen Recorder is one of the most convenient and intuitive programs for recording screen videos and taking screenshots. The start window will meet you with two points: "Screen Capture" and "Screenshot". Selecting any of these functions will open the corresponding control panels as well as a frame indicating the recorded area of the screen. It can be moved freely in any direction, pulled by special controls, changing the aspect ratio and scale, or you can specify the exact size in pixels from the settings menu. You can also select the option to record the screen area around the cursor (and the size of the area, respectively). The program allows you to add notes, text and other graphic elements to the created images and clips. This can be done from the "Drawing" panel.
Unfortunately, IceCream Screen Recorder does not contain any specific recording quality parameters (resolution, bitrate, codec, etc.). Only the menu with options is available to the user: "tall", "middle" and "low". This is probably the only obvious disadvantage of this program. On the other hand, it has many advantages and features that other similar applications do not have. These include: support for scaling during recording, flexible sound settings, the ability to use the "step" tool to highlight the steps to be taken when creating a video lesson, the option of automatically disabling the screen saver when recording, displaying keystrokes, hiding desktop icons, and copying screenshots to the clipboard. And the main thing is that all these features are available for free.
