Hi! If you screen record with the built-in Windows 11 screen recorder (Xbox Game Bar) and never change the saving path, you can find your recordings in this way:

  • This PC\Local Disk (C:)\User\Admin\Videos\Captures

Then, you will find your recordings in the Captures folder.

Actually, you can change the default location to another one according to your needs. To achieve that goal, you can follow the below settings:

Step 1. Hit Windows + G on your keyboard to open the Game Bar.

Step 2. Next, select the Settings icon (looks like a gear), and choose the Captures.

Step 3. Then, find and click Change where captures are saved.

Step 4. At last, select your desired folder to save your recordings.

Xbox Game Bar is a free Windows screen recorder, but it also has some drawbacks, like limited recording time, few recording options, low video quality, and more. Most importantly, it's troublesome to find your recordings. Given that, I suggest you try a fantastic screen recorder called EaseUS RecExperts.

Unlike Windows 11 built-in screen recorder, this software lets you record videos as long as you want. And, you are able to select your recording area flexibly in an entire screen, a portion screen, or a locked window. When you finish your recording, it automatically leads you to the preview window. Additionally, you can manage your recording like below:

  • One-click to find all your recordings
  • Rename and move your recordings with one simple click
  • Edit your recordings with trimming, compressing, and other tools
  • ...

So, if you are in need, EaseUS RecExperts is a nice option!
