This is good for those computers running Mojave but what about computers running Sierra or High Sierra?

I won’t be at my MacBook until this evening, however, I’m pretty sure QuickTime also lets you record your screen.

I don’t know why I didn’t think of this earlier, OBS Studio will allow you to record your screen. It’s a program a lot of streamers use to stream their games, but it will also record.
