How to Record Audio on Windows 11 with Built-In/Third-Party Tool

Vanessa Chiang Updated on Sep 01, 2021| min read

The latest generation of Microsoft Windows operating system, Windows 11, has several advanced features compared with the previous generations. Some of its new features include widgets, better virtual desktop support, and speedy multitasking, etc. Recording audio on Windows 11 for different online activities is something you may need, whether you are a gamer, freelancer, YouTuber, or digital worker. But how to record audio on Windows 11? Does this new OS provide users with any default options?

There are two ways to record audio on Windows 11, and you can use both the built-in tool or third-party software to do that. This post will guide you to capture audio on Windows 11 step by step. Follow those tutorials to save the sounds you like.

How to Record Internal Audio on Windows 11 with Game Bar 

Windows 11 allows users to record audio with the Xbox Game Bar application. This built-in program supports recording games and other digital activities on your Windows PC, including your voice note or different computer sounds.

Game Bar makes it easier for you to take control of your gaming activities while recording them. It has user-friendly features, and you can adjust the audio settings per your preferences. Moreover, it enables you to socialize with people of the same interest. All you need to do is join the Xbox community. 

How to Record Internal Audio on Windows 11 with Game Bar:

Step 1. To enable Game Bar, press Windows + G. Click "Capture" from the game bar preset.

Step 2. If you want to include your verbal narration/voice note, click the "Mic" button in the "Capture" group. Or you can press Windows + Alt + M to turn the mic on and off.

Step 3. Click the "Start Recording" icon in the "Capture" pane. Or press Windows + Alt + R to start/stop recording. The Xbox Game Bar will be minimized, and a "Capture Status" will show on the right edge of your PC screen.

Step 4. Click the "Recording" button or press Windows + Alt + R to stop recording.

But this software also has a shortcoming. As it's designed to capture the gameplay, Game Bar doesn't support capturing only the audio. Although it has a versatile recording tool that enables you to capture internal audio and your own voice simultaneously, you have to record those sounds along with recording the screen. 

For those who want to record a ringtone or record a song and use it as background music, Game Bar is relatively complex to use. You have to find a video editor that supports extracting audio from videos, such as EaseUS Video Editor, or you need to find a recorder with a more advanced audio recording tool, like EaseUS RecExperts.

Recording audio in Windows 11 is not an issue. You can do it with the built-in Game Bar app, which enables you to record screens with voiceovers or other sounds. But this app can affect your Windows in negative ways, like slowing down the speed.
