Sometimes to describe a software issue you really want to record a .gif. I had been using Licecap. It is very easy and basic single function software. But some months ago it quit working under Windows 10. Just a little while ago I found an updated version which I recommend. I have no connection or personal stake in this, just a recommendation for users of this forum who might need to record a .gif. There seem to be a number of sites offering Licecap and I guess that some are bogus. But this one seems to work.
