To record pictures as a video on Windows, two easy-to-use screen recording tools can help you. One of them is the pre-installed tool on your PC, while the other is a third-party one.

#1. Xbox Game Bar

The Steps of Recording Pictures as Video Using Game Bar:

Step 1. Tab the "Windows + G" keyboard shortcut to open this software. If you see a new window to ask you whether to open Game Bar when you click, you may answer "Yes".

Step 2. If you want to finish recording, you may click the "Stop" button to stop record, or you may also use the "Windows + Alt + R" keyboard shortcut to stop recording. And then, the recording file will save on your computer.

Although this software is convenient to use, it doesn't support editing your video after recording, changing the recording video file format, and so on. So, next, I will recommend to you another best screen recording software - EaseUS RecExperts.
