Of course, yes! You can record 4K videos on a 1080P monitor!

However, to capture 4K on a 1080p monitor and export it in 4K quality, you first need to meet the two prerequisites below:

  • The CPU can handle 4K when you set your computer's display resolution to 4K ()
  • You have an excellent 4K screen recorder

Well, when it comes to a great 4K video recorder, you have a variety of options as there are lots of screen recorders on the market. As an advanced user, I tested and used many programs, and the only one I still use is EaseUS RecExperts. I think it is worth trying if you have no idea about the screen recording tool.

Moreover, this tool provides many useful recording modes to satisfy your needs, like capturing streaming videos, recording gameplay, grabbing online classes, and more!

Now, you can get this tool and start recording 4K on your 1080p monitor by checking the following tutorial:

Step 1. Open Windows Display Settings and choose 4K resolution to change your display resolution.

Step 2. Launch the EaseUS screen recorder and choose your desired region to record.

Step 3. Click Settings to change the output file's quality. Once done, hit REC to start recording.
