    Microsoft, you really messed up. My trusty Sound Recorder, not, repeat NOT Voice Recorder is no longer offered on Windows 10, as it was in Windows 7. Used to be, I could record all the music, and such for my radio shows, on Sound Recorder. Voice Recorder wont do that very well if at all. Sound Recorder would capture, at least 8 hours of audio, where as Voice Recorder, only captures if lucky 15 to 20 minutes. You need to make this an update and make it standard for Windows 10 as it was for Windows 7.

  2. Sound Recorder isn't Working!

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    To guide you In right direction we want to know:

    -Are you using voice recorder or any other app to do so?

    I would suggest you to try these methods and check if that helps:

    Method 1:

    Please run Recording Run Troubleshooter.

    You may try to run the in-built Windows Recording Audio troubleshooter and check. Follow the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X..
    • Click on Control Panel.
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • On the left pane, click on View All.
    • Click on Windows Recording Audio to run the troubleshooter.

    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to use the sound recorder and check if you are able to record the sound.

    • In the Windows Start screen, type “sound recorder”, then select Sound Recorder from the search results.
    • Try recording your voice through your microphone, then play it back. To do so, simply tap or click Start Recording, speak to the microphone, and then save the file so you can play the recording.

    This will helps us to find out if the issue is with any online messenger like Skype or Windows.


    I also suggest you to install the latest driver for Mic from the manufacturer’s website.

    I also request you to refer the following link:

    I hope this helps you. If you have any further query in future, feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help you.



    Thank you.

    Cannot uninstall Free Sound Recorder v10.7.1 Type 32 bit HELP!

    I have an HP laptop with Windows 10 installed Version number 1903 and I think it is 64 bit. I installed the above program 2 months ago and I want to uninstall it.
    I tried the many suggestions provided here:
    Uninstall and Remove Free Sound Recorder 8.2.3 Step by Step
    except the last suggestion but none of them worked.
    The last suggestion tells you to download a third party uninstaller and tells you to click on a link which I do not know I can trust. I have however tried installing Revo uninstaller 2.1.0 free version and even this program could not uninstall the program. The message is always the same

    C\Program Files(86x)\Free Sound Recorder\unins000.dat" does not exist. Cannot uninstall.

    Will installing bitdefender antivirus program get rid of it?
    PLEASE HELP.
