Ever heard of “Problems Steps Recorder”

Ever heard of “Problems Steps Recorder”?
Me neither until today when I got a tip from Adrian J I know from a Corel forum we both visits.

And I think you will remember it too now if you try it out, and if you like myself sometimes have to explain to others which steps you made in a program. Like reporting a bug defect.

“Problems Steps Recorder” (PSR) is found very easily via Windows 7 search field in the Start menu. Simply write “PSR” and there it is. Now when you are ready simply start recording your steps, stop recording and save in a folder on your computer. It will save as a ZIP file. Using your email program send the ZIP file to your IT-support, beta testing group, friend or collegue. Well anyone in need of it. And when they recieve the zip file they will view the file in a internet browser. Easy!

This will be very helpfull if you work in programs such as CorelDRAW, Photoshop and Microsoft WORD – and any other program fro that matter where it may take time to write down and explain in text all the steps you made.

It will save you a lot of time.

Personally i useally write down and attach a screen capture (video) using a screen capture program. Which is great. You can talk and show as you explain, like in any movie. The “Problems Steps Recorder” will add an extra flavor to it.
