when i do this it records sound of my microfone.. but i want it to record the sound i hear (so music, gameplay sound etc)
When i am using the sound recorder in Windows 7 and i dont want to save what i just recorded, is there a way to delete it without saving it and deleting it? When I stop recording it pops up and asks to save but if I hit cancel it goes back and says resume recording. Also can you replay what you just recorded without saving it. It sure seems cumbersom...
