Proper screen preparation is a super important part of creating a quality screencast. The idea is simple: hide everything. Yes, EVERYTHING. This way we ensure that our viewers can focus solely on the material we're teaching without being sidetracked by our desktop icons or application names. No matter the type of computer you're using, hiding elements on your screen is an important part of recording great screencasts.
