  • It seems to me that simplescreenrecorder should fulfill your needs. You can configure a key shortcut, which is by default Super + R. The application of course has to be loaded first. It has a tray icon too.

OBS should be what you're looking for. It supports keyboard shortcuts, you can easily record from within fullscreen applications like games, or just specific windows, record your microphone etc.
