Record steps to reproduce a problem...

As the title above suggest, there's a free tool included on Windows 7 (Pro and above) that really useful for developers to troubleshoot problems on their product. The tool name is "Record steps to reproduce a problem", it's kind of obvious isn't it?

Search for the tool


Start recording and do your stuff


How to use it? Simple, click your Windows button and search for "record steps". You'll see the tool appear on menu and then click it. To start the session click "Start Record" button. Do your stuff and stop recording by clicking "Stop Record" button. A file dialog will appear for you to save the recorded session into a zip file. Unzip the file and you'll get the report in mhtml format.

Stop recording and save the session


This remind me the days when trouble shooting was my main activity while working at my previous company. Life would be easier if I had found this tool earlier.
