I used command shift 4 to drag recordings, don't notice a screen recording happening. thanks.
command-shift-4 is used to create a partial screenshot, and as far as I can tell you can't do anything
other than that while you''re in that mode. And if there's any way you can create a screen recording without launching some app or other, it's a brand new one on me.
Some clarification is needed, particularly what you mean when you say that you "used command shift 4 to drag recordings."
