Creating demonstrations, tutorials or presentations is often a troublesome task, especially if you attempt to do these without using specialized applications. Screen2Exe is one of these applications that makes it easy to record the screen activity and therefore to perform the aforementioned tasks.

Screen2Exe can record either the full screen or only a specific area of the desktop. The recording will include the mouse movement and clicking as well as the sound from a connected microphone. High speed recordings of up to 30 frames per second can also be performed.

Screen2Exe comes with a neat, intuitive and straightforward wizard-like interface that guides you gradually through the three main steps of creating the demonstration or presentation: the screen recording, the editing of the recording and the saving of the recording to a local EXE or AVI file. The editing of the recording consists of adding annotations, images and effects to it. A frame optimization tool is also included. When saving the recording to a video AVI file or to a self-executable EXE you can also choose the output quality. I really like that the program will estimate the output file size for each selected output quality, therefore you will know exactly how selecting one of these parameters impacts the other.

In conclusion, Screen2Exe represents a good option for anyone in need of a simple, free, lightweight and yet effective screen recording solution.
