How to stop a Quicktime screen recording.

Have you ever started a Quicktime screen recording and the control panel disappears? Then, when it comes time to stop the recording you’re left wondering how in the heck to stop it short of pressing Escape to bring the control panel back up? Well, I have.

Here are two easy ways to stop a Quicktime screen recording:

  1. When the control panel disappears, a stop button appears in your upper menu bar (see image below). All you have to do is click it and your recording stops.
  2. You can also use the keyboard shortcut: Command + Control + Escape.

If you really just want that control panel to show up again, simply press Escape.
