Screen recorders are large in number, so finding just the right one is not an easy task. This passage lays emphasis on how to screen record on Lenovo laptops with the most useful and trusted screen recorders.

The first one is a very rarely known Lenovo product – Nerve Center, which is created to capture games on users’ Lenovo laptops. It could also be regarded as a basic screen recorder to record daily activities on users’ Lenovo laptops.

This recorder is free yet as I mention just now, basic and simple. So if users have higher requirements over their video quality, FPS, or bitrates, I will later introduce a good alternative of Lenovo Nerve Sense.

Use Lenovo’s Recorder – Nerve Sense to Do Screen Record on Lenovo Laptop


The Lenovo Verve Sense (Center) to Lenovo users is just like the default recorder HPSR to HP laptops users. Verve Center actually is not a built-in recorder that comes with every Lenovo laptops. Users need to download it from Lenovo’s official site so as to use it.

This recording software provides information about your gaming machine, helps you with network priority, and most importantly, lets you share game videos by recording gameplay clips with it.
Currently, only Windows 10 users can use this recorder.

• How to Record Screen with Lenovo Nerve Sense?

1. Download Nerve Center. You can go to to download it. The relevant link is displayed below:

2. Open Lenovo Nerve Sense, go to the ‘Discover’ interface. Before recording, we need to do some tweaking to the default settings to make our clips look better.

You can manage the video quality, FPS, resolution, and saving path after you hit the gear-like button. Some less important options like cursor effect, microphone, and auto start are also manageable.

3. Hit the recording button (the one that shows in the picture above) on your keyboard and start recording.

4. Once you have done all the workflow, your clips will be displayed right on the Discover interface.

• Lenovo Nerve Sense’s Fatal Deficiencies

1. Lenovo Nerve Sense causes an evident FPS drop, in which respect, it is less comparable with Nvidia Shadow Play (not a perfect recorder either, shadow play captures only games rather than ordinary on-screen activities).

2. Lenovo Nerve Sense has a limited number of setting options, you cannot set the bitrates, cannot add customized watermark to your video, cannot record with a webcam, or edit your video.

3. This plugin could misfit with windows defender, Lenovo Nerve Sense could crash as a result.

So you may now be wondering, is there a screen recorder that is not CPU intensive and coexists perfectly with your windows defender, and even provides advanced options for producing the best videos?
The answer is positive.

Use 3rd-Party Screen Recorder to Do Screen Record on Lenovo Laptop

3rd-party screen recorders surpass the free, default recorder in that they provide more recording modes, more advanced options, and more useful features to make your recording process smooth and comfortable.

However, third-party screen recorders share one common feature – they charge fees (most of the products).
Among all the paid screen recorders, RecMaster is the most cost-effective one. It has as many useful features as the magnate recorder in the market like Bandicam or Snagit but it charges the least.

As a handy recording tool, it used to work perfectly on ASUS laptops, Dell laptops. Users use RecMaster to record YouTube videos when they cannot download YouTube videos. It could also be used to record gameplay videos, and make all kinds of videos (tutorial videos, podcast videos) with it.
