Microsoft has gone into a frenzy in which it has given up remove system tools that have been available for years. We were talking about this recently when the definitive elimination of the classic WordPad that had accompanied us for so many years was announced. Now they confirm that they are going to take another of those classic tools ahead.

What is happening in Windows 11 has never been seen with such intensity. Microsoft has taken the broom out for a walk and is sweeping exhaustively. They have decided clean up your operating system so that many of the most classic tools disappear. The last one to join the list is one known as User Action Recording. It may not sound familiar to you, but there were those who used it very frequently.

Goodbye Steps Recorder

This is the name of the application in English and by which you may recognize it more. In any case, It had been available for more than 10 years and for many users it had become a really useful tool. For now, if you have not updated in recent days and you have an old version, you will still see that it is still available in Windows 11. You can open it without problems by searching for its name in Start, but Microsoft has already confirmed that it will eliminate it in a future update of the OS.

User Actions Recording Tool in Windows

Aware that there are a large number of users who still use this tool, Microsoft has decided to include a notice the moment you open the program. To see it, yes, you will have to update to the latest edition of Windows 11 that has been published. In the message, what the company does is recommend alternatives to those who can make the leap because they will not be able to continue using this tool in the future. Some of the mentions made include Snipping tool or Microsoft Clipchamp.

What can you do with it?

As you can deduce from its name, because it is undeniable that the name it has in English is very accurate (the translation into Spanish, for its part, is confusing), the objective of this tool is that you can record the screen of the computer while you are performing a series of steps. Previously, it was commonly used when you had to show a friend or even a technician some problem you were experiencing on your computer. What you did was start the screen recorder and recreate what was happening on the computer.

Afterwards, the tool created a file in which it compiled all the steps to follow and included both photos and a video of what it wanted to show. The file in question was on a easy-to-open MHTML format, so sharing the recording ended up being really easy. However, it is a type of function that you can now cover with other apps that Microsoft recommends and that you have available without problems. In addition, these types of programs have more functions, making them more useful.

Steps Recorder notice in Windows 11

Before we told you that you can find the tool in the Start menu, but that will only be if you have not updated. If you already have the latest version of Windows 11, you will not be able to search for the tool by name, but you will have to search directly by the name of the program file, which is psr.exe. There is also still the option to open it from the Run menu that you can open with the classic combination of the Windows key and R. However, when the future update that Microsoft is talking about occurs, there will be no way to open it. the program.

With the removal of this tool, Microsoft moves forward on their way to adjust the service that it offers with Windows 11 to users, in which they want, apparently, all the programs available to have, today, a reason for being.
