How to Access and Manage the Galaxy Note 20 Screen Recorder Settings

This post will help you modify the existing screen recorder configuration on the Galaxy Note 20 smartphone. Read on to learn how to access and manage the Note 20 screen recorder settings so as to achieve a satisfying screen record output.

Samsung Screen Record Feature

Samsung devices do embed a number of advanced features for both advanced and novice end-users. And the screen record is among them.

With the built-in screen record feature, you can easily record your screen without having to download any third-party apps. This feature can typically be accessed through the notification panel or quick panel on your device.  The way this recording feature works may vary between devices.

In Samsung devices, Screen Recording is triggered by a touch on its icon straight from the Quick panel.

When activated, your device will commence recording of the screen after the 3-second countdown. Main controls will then appear on the upper-right section of the display, for you to click on when needed.


If the screen recording does not commence, press and hold the Power button then tap the Screen Record icon from the Quick panel (notification panel).

To ensure that your saved recordings are processed according to your own preferences, verifying the current configuration is recommended. And here’s how it’s done on your Galaxy Note 20.

Once you’re in the DCIM menu, simply open the Screen recordings folder to view its content. Screen recordings are saved as MP4 files that can be open with photo, video player and other relevant apps that support the MP4 file format.

Other Ways to Screen Record

Aside from the built-in screen record feature, you can also resort to some third-party apps to record your screen. Among the widely used tools for this purpose include but not limited to AZ screen, Google Play Games, Vysor and more. You can download any of these apps via Play Store for free or via one-time purchase. Just pick the one that works as intended and is compatible with the Note 20.

Should you encounter any trouble with screen recording like unable to record or the the actual recording process is somehow laggy or sluggish, restarting the device can help. If that doesn’t do any good, check for new software updates to download and install. This is likely what’s needed if the problem is attributed to some system bugs.
