  4. To the right-hand side of your selected recording you will see a export icon. Click on the icon.

  5. A window will open on the screen with different data export options. Select or unselect additional data streams you want to export (EEG data is always exported), choose a folder to export the EEG data recording to, and choose whether you want your data exported as a CSV or EDF file.

  6. The EEG data will be exported to the chosen folder.

  7. The recording first need to synced to the desktop before it can first be exported. Make sure the cloud icon towards the left of experiment name is in Green. Click for it to sync incase it is not synced already
