I'm looking for a windows app for recording screen to GIF, similar to Peek. There are tons of screen recording apps, but none of them seem to have a built-in delay. Unfortunately this is a feature I'm really looking for. Here's how Peek works: http://i.imgur.com/qLhiw12.gif


Microsoft Expression Encoder 4 with Service Pack 2 (SP2) has such a feature. You can install it without any registration code, just press continue when the code is asked for. It delays by 3 seconds.

  • Thanks, but I'm really looking for something much simpler. I want to quickly launch the app, press record, and save the gif – megapctr Dec 2 '16 at 14:05
  • Even easier? Tell me if you find something that is even easier. I consider this app easy to use. Good luck searching. – Michael S. Dec 4 '16 at 15:04
