    Sound Recorder XP

    I don't really care for the current sound recorder, and I'd like the Windows XP sound recorder back because it has way more options (like echo, reverse, etc).

    Anyway, my question is: Is there a way that I can download the XP version? Windows 8 doesn't have the sndrec32 file (as far as I'm aware), and I can't find a tutorial that doesn't require it. I guess my question is... Is there a way to get the XP sound recorder on my Windows 8 computer?

    I doubt this info will help, but Just In Case: My laptop is a Toshiba.

    I don't think so. Windows XP handles some sound functions differently than Vista/Win7/Win8.

    Download the free (and popular) Audacity recording program. It has everything the XP sound recorder had Plus.
