How to change the location where your recordings are stored

´╗┐The Screencast-O-Matic recorder can store your recordings at a selected location on your computer.  You can store in multiple locations if desired.

By default, recordings are stored in the Documents folder on both PC and Mac.

 

Change the location of your recordings folder

In order to change the location of where your recordings go, open up the Video editor content management screen, and click on the folder in the upper left.

This dropdown will appear with your current saved locations.  If you already have locations added besides the default, they will show up in the area denoted by the pink box in the image below. 

If you already have locations saved, simply click on the name of that location to bring up the recordings stored there.

Once you locate a folder you would like to begin saving to, click to submit. Please note you may need to create the folder beforehand with your OS in order to select it in this dialog.

The location to save recordings is now set to this chosen location.  Additionally, you should now see this folder as an option in the dropdown when changing back to this location.

 

Move existing recordings to a different folder location

If you already have some recordings, you may choose to move them to a new location for purposes of organization.
