1. Simultaneously press Command (⌘), Shift, and 5 (number).

 

2. A Screenshot tool banner would appear at the bottom of the screen. 

 

3. Choose between ‘Record Entire Screen’ or ‘Record A Portion Of The Screen’.

4. You can also change settings for where to save the recording, Hide/View mouse clicks, Timer duration, Microphone on/off, and source. 

5. You will see a black camera icon on the screen when you go outside the banner’s perimeter. Click anywhere and you should see the recording icon appear on the top menu bar (towards the right-hand side). This means the recording is going on. If you click on that icon, the recording will stop and you will see a floating thumbnail on the bottom right corner of the screen. Click on it to play the recorded video.
