This tutorial talks about how to record login screen as GIF. Well, there is no direct method available to do that, so I will tell you about a very handy tweak that can do that easily. in the tutorial, I will make use of two different freeware namely: EOAR, and Gooncam. The EOAR freeware lets you open Command prompt on the login screen, so you can easily open any program on the login screen. And using EOAR, I will open Gooncam on the login screen and then record the activities.
Gooncam is free software that lets you record any particular region of your screen as GIF. And you can also edit the recorded GIF and remove unnecessary frames from it. And then save the final GIF to any directory.
