    Sound Recorder


    Good evening to all.
    I have an Acer Aspire i7.E1-572 laptop.Windows 8.1
    Went to use the sound recorder that is included in the laptop,My granddaughter went to give a song into it and all went to plane,Played back the recording it was just perfect.
    Now the only hitch is where does it save the media I looked in all folders but failed to find it.
    Can anyone Please help.
    Many Thanks.

    1 - If you use Metro Apps, it is stored under:
    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsSoundRecorder_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Indexed\Recordings

    Where USERNAME is your user account

    EDIT: You'd need to turn on the "Show hidden files" from the folder options

    2 - If you use Windows version, then it will prompt you where you want to store.

    Yes, you can copy to the desktop or
    You can right click & hold on the folder then move to desktop then release to create a shortcut.
