"You can use Steps Recorder to automatically capture steps you take on a PC, including a text description of what you did and a picture of the screen during each step (called a screen shot). Once you capture these steps, you can save them to a file that can be sent to other people. This can be helpful if you're trying to show someone how to do a certain task or troubleshoot a problem with a support professional."
