Please kindly be noted that ActivePresenter will hide itself when recording the screen.
You can use hotkey (CTRL+END (for Windows) or ⌥⌘2 (for macOS)) or click ActivePresenter icon in the system tray to stop the recording as described in this tutorial:

After that, your recorded video will appear in the editor. You can edit it, and follow the instruction in the following tutorial to export it to video format:


Hi, I had a similar problem. After I ended the recording with hotkey, a small dialogue box appeared for a few seconds and then the Activepresenter window DID NOT appear. My recording did not show up. I had surely started the recording after the countdown in the beginning. So where did my recording of 25 minutes go? Does ActivePresenter store some temp files in some hidden folder? can i retrieve it ?
Activepresenter version 8
OS: windows 10
Desktop PC
