Is there any way to stop the recording in Gnome Shell 3.10 other than killing the process?

@skytux I don't see any icon. I can't even reveal the bottom panel.

I'm not sure what happens in Gnome 3.10, but in 3.8 I just click in the icon (located in the bottom panel) and it stops recording.

To see the bottom panel, press the following key combination: Win + M.

Ctrl+Alt+S stops the recording. Works for me on Fedora 23.

Gnome shell has inbuild desktop recorder. Start it with

  1. Alt+Control+Shift+R - You can see red icon top-left side. It means recording started
  2. Again press Alt+control+shift+R red icon will go away. Its means recording stopped.

You can find recording video AT userhoem/Videos folder.
