Do you make sure your screen recordings are easy to view?

Most developers like to set up their screen efficiently – often that means small fonts, visible bookmark bars and a huge amount of browser tabs and taskbar items. While this is great for efficiency, it is not very good for recordings or presentations, and the clutter should be removed.
Before recording your screen reduce visual noise by:
Open the tab in its own window
Zoom in to 125% by holding Ctrl and scrolling up on the mouse wheel
Unnecessary bookmark bar
- Windows shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + b
- Mac shortcut: Cmd + Shift + b
- Figure: Bad example - This video will be cluttered and unprofessional
- Figure: Good example - This is easy to read, and doesn’t look cluttered
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
