Would be way more useful with the ability to change save location, at the moment this is not particularly useful.

Are there shortcuts to do selected area or window without having to click the applet icon on the panel? I want to capture another window that closes as soon as I click anywhere. I currently have to capture the whole screen and then edit it in GIMP or such. Yes, save location and filename would be a great option.

It would be nice if it would let me use a custom save path and save the image to my clipboard so I can paste it into another application too.

I noticed only one problem, around the sound, it always takes my sound from the microphone, Record Current Window With Audio - it takes a sound from my microphone, not with window.

EU/DE: Sehr gute Arbeit, keine Frage! Eine Option zum Ändern des Standardpfads für die Bildspeicherung, z.B. Bilder/ein Unterordner, würde das Applet noch komfortabler gestalten. ;) EU-brexit/UK: Very good work, no question! An option to change the default path for image storage, e.g. images/subfolders, would make the applet even more comfortable. ;)

Works great :), although I'm a little burden on the computer when recording. Add if you want the option of the screen resolution 720p and 480p and other formats eg mp4,3gp...

Keyboard shortcuts to start and stop screen recorder, so I do not have to edit recording and remove the popup of my stopping the recording.

"Record Desktop" does not work.

Could you add options to configure where to save the screenshots and videos?
