AnsweredWhere are the Screen Recordings Saved on Mac?

Where are the screen recordings saved? I just took a screen recording, and now I can't find it! It isn't showing up on my desktop as my screenshots do.  Any suggestions?

There are mainly two situations:

  1. 1. By default, the screen recording files will be saved on your desktop.
  2. 2. If you are using QuickTime to take a screen recording, and your Mac is running on macOS Catalina and later, you may find the screen recordings from ~/Library/ScreenRecordings.

If you tried these places and couldn't find the videos you recorded before, you'd better try another tool to record videos on your device.

We recommend EaseUS RecExperts as this screen recorder for Mac and Windows will lead you to the recording list after the recording process is finished. In this way, you don't need to worry about losing the file. Download it from the button below right now!
