Screen recording out of viewer window?

May 15, 2020

Hi - I tried to create a recording using Peek today and even though I set my screen recording outline to the size of my screen, it seems to record half of each monitor?  I've tried just the application window the "select an application" peek launch and I've tried full screen. 

Any ideas on what to try to fix this so I get either my laptop or my external monitor but not part of both?

Hi Christina, 

Thank you for reaching out! Let's see if we can figure out this snag!

May I ask what the Scale and Layout settings are for your computer and monitor? You can check these settings by: 

  1. Right-clicking on your desktop and select Display settings.
  2. Click the Display tab in the upper left corner of the window that appears.
  3. Under Scale and layout, you will want to make sure these settings are set to 100%.  

After checking those settings, could I have you create a new Peek to see if that clears up the issue?

If you continue to hit any snags along the way, please let us know!
