TinyTask is a completely free screen recorder that allows you to record actions going on your screen and save them on your system. The USP of the software is minimal space it occupies and efficient result that it provides. The recorded files can be saved in your system and played whenever you want. A settings tab is provided on the tiny interface of the software, that can be used to alter settings like controlling the recording speed, setting the repeat count and much more.
However, a big limitation of this screen recorder is that it can save recordings in .exe format only, which you can view by just double clicking, but you cannot save them in regular video formats, like, avi or wmv. Also, you can record only full screen and not a part of the screen.
This free screen recorder is unbelievably small in size and does not require any installation. It is a very simple software and, although it misses out on a few features available in other similar software, it is totally worth consideration due to its tiny size.
