Pop Quiz: Making, Sharing Recordings in Windows 7

Applies to the "“Identifying Cause of and Resolving Desktop Application Issues" objective of Exam 70-685 Pro: Windows 7, Enterprise Desktop Support Technician.

Q: Which of the following Windows 7 applications allows both administrators and users to record the steps involved in installing a program, troubleshooting a problem, or as training materials?

  1. System Restore
  2. Reliability Monitor
  3. Problem Steps Recorder
  4. System Information

Answer and explanation is below.

Answer is C: The Problem Steps Recorder can be used to automatically capture the steps taken by administrators or users including a text description and screen shots during each click. Once captured, this information is saved to a file that can be used by someone else.

Quick Tip: When steps are recorded, anything typed will not be recorded. The comment feature can be used to highlight what the focus of the steps includes. The saved record will be a compiled MHTML file placed in a zip and viewable in a Web browser.
