How to record Windows 7 Default Speaker Audio/Sound and Convert it into a MP3 Format

I have faced several occasions to record the Windows default sound/audio, mostly I used to record sound from tutorials, radio, Adobe reader etc. The following steps help to enable the Windows 7 audio/sound recording,

The following steps will show how we can enable Window default Audio/Sound recording. 

1. To open the Audio/Sound control panel properties menu, we can use any of the below methods. These options enable us to open Windows 7 Audio/Sound control panel properties menu from Windows 7 control panel.

a. Go to Widows 7 Control Panel and Select Sound

b. We can also use Windows RUN command “mmsys.cpl sounds” or “mmsys.cpl” to open the Windows7 Audio/Sound control panel properties.

Go to Windows RUN and type the command “mmsys.cpl” and press enter key. System sound control panel properties will be opened before us.

4. Download MP3 Recorder software and record the Window default Audio/Sound recording. I used “Mp3myMp3” to record the Window default Audio/Sound. We need to change the recording device from recording software to Windows Stereo Mix
