The Screen Recorder application gives you multiple screens of the various settings that can be tweaked, and you can choose any options you like. Also, unless you have a reason to make a tweak, it's advisable to leave many of settings at their default. They are enough to cater to most common recording needs.

Area Selection

Add exclusions: when you're selecting area for recording, you can click this option to get into a screen where you can select what window or process you don't want to record in your video.

Display choose: if you have more than one displays connected to your computer, you can select the one you need to record from the Display drop-down menu, next to ON switch.

Fixed aspect ratio: After you enter the desired values for Width and Height (1920 x 1080 for example, see the screenshot above), you can click the Lock icon between them to lock the selection to a specific aspect ratio. It doesn't matter which value you change in Width or Height, it stays locked at the fixed aspect ratio and sets another value automatically.
