  2. Google Chrome

  3. The Searchie Chrome Extension

Step 1 - Start a recording

Once you've installed and pinned the Searchie Extension to your Chrome browser, click on the Searchie icon in the top-right corner of your browser. After clicking the icon, from the dropdown window that appears click Start Recording.

If recording your screen, choose the screen and/or window to record in the next step. Click Share after you have made your selection to begin the recording.

Now that the annotation options are visible, you can start to draw and highlight things on your recording.

From left to right...

  • The circle displaying a colour will allow you to choose a colour for the annotations.

  • The pencil icon will give you the ability to draw free-hand in your chosen colour anywhere on your screen.

  • The eraser icon can be used to delete anything drawn with the pencil.
