    Why is there a pinned tab when I try to record with the Chrome Extension? 

    The pinned tab is a requirement of the new Manifest Version 3 architecture. It’s a requirement from Google. You can safely ignore it - it will go away when you’re done recording.

    Can I record both of my monitors or go back and forth between monitors?

    Unfortunately no, you cannot record two monitors at once nor switch between monitors while recording.
