How to record voice from microphone on Windows 11/10

1. Firstly select the mic you will be using to record audio. Select whether you will be using your laptop’s mic or any external mic to record audio. Open the settings of your PC. In the settings, head to the sound tab in the left sidebar. Under the input section, you will see the Microphone option. From here, you can add the Microphone and set it as default to record audio.

2. Go to Start menu. Search and open Voice Recorder

3. In the recording app, click the record button to record. You can also press Ctrl + R to start recording.
4. After doing so, the recording will begin. You can press the pause button to pause the recording. Continue recording whenever you want and the audio will be recorded in the same file. You will also have the option to stop recording or click the flag button to flag it.
5. As soon as you click the Stop Recording button, Voice Recorder will immediately save your recording and list it along with all your previous recordings on the next screen. From there you can playback your recordings by left clicking them.. By right-clicking any of your recordings on the list, you can share, rename or delete them as you wish.

Where does the voice recorder save files on Windows 11/10

1. The folder path below is the file location where the recording app saves its voice recordings. Replace your_username with the username of your actual Windows account.

C:\Users\your_username\Documents\Sound Recordings

2. All your recordings using the Voice Recorder app will be saved as M4A audio files.

Note: Another better method for quick access to this folder is to open it directly from the Voice Recorder app. Right-click any of your recordings on the app, then click Open file location.

Voice Recorder shows “To get started, connect a microphone”

1. If you see To get started, connect a microphone message when you open the app, it means Windows couldn’t detect a working microphone connected to your PC, or that the app is blocked from accessing your microphone.

2. For the second option, make sure that the Allow apps to access your microphone option is enabled in Settings > Privacy > Microphone

That All!
