I installed Windows 10 yesterday. I tried to start the Voice Recorder and got a screen with a gray microphone and the message 'Before you can record, we need access to your Documents folder.'
No explanation, no links to click- just the three dots on the lower right of the screen; when I click them, I get two choices- Settings and Feedback. Clicking on Settings brings up the following: Voice Recorder By Microsoft Corporation Version 10.1507.7010.0 The for your version of Windows govern your use of this software. Copyright 2015 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. Microphone Settings None of these links has anything useful or relevant; the Microphone Settings page has switches to let apps use my microphone and indicate that Voice Recorder is one of the apps that are allowed to do so, and I have both switches turned on. The Feedback link brings up the Windows Feedback system- nothing useful there, either. Other than the above links, there are no other links, switches or other doodads anywhere on the page What, if anything, do I need to do to grant access to the Documents folder?
Hello, Thank you for your interest in Windows 10. This issue might occur due to corruption on the user account. You may try to add a new administrator user to the PC and check if it works fine.
If it does. Log on as a user other than the new user you just created or the user that you want to copy files from. Open the My Documents folder by Pressing Windows logo + Q and typing computer while highlighting settings Double-click the hard disk drive that Windows is installed on (it's usually your C: drive), double-click Users, double- click the folder with the name of your account, and then double-click My Documents. Click the Tools menu, and then click Folder Options. If you don't see the Tools menu, press Alt. Click the View tab, and then click Show hidden files, folders, and drives. Clear the Hide protected operating system files check box, click Yes to confirm, and then click OK.
Locate the C: Users OldUsername folder, where C is the drive that Windows is installed on, and OldUsername is the name of the profile you want to copy files from. Select all of the files and folders in this folder, except the following files:.
Ntuser.dat.Ntuser.dat.log.Ntuser.ini. Click the Edit menu, and then click Copy. If you don't see the Edit menu, press Alt.
Locate the C: Users NewUsername folder, where C is the drive that Windows is installed on, and NewUsername is the name of the new user profile you created. Click the Edit menu, and then click Paste.
If you don't see the Edit menu, press Alt. Log off, and then log back on as the new user.

Hope this information was helpful Thank you Regards, Sahil Bali. Okay, just to be clear, your answer certainly put me on the right track to fixing this little error, so thank you for that. But the beautiful thing is that most people can simply do the following: Access your Documents folder from it's root; 'C:/Users/YourUserName/Documents' Just create a folder named after whichever account you're using, personally I log in as 'Corey' so I created a Corey Folder (without the quotes obviously) in my 'Documents' folder, re-opened Voice Recorder, and poof! It works, not sure why either, all I did was that, and unhide hidden files (which there weren't any of there), and it'll create a 'Sound recordings' folder where everything will be saved. You may want to make sure you go into the settings as well (the little. at the lower right corner of the GUI, and make sure you're sharing Microphone capibilities and access (etc.) with this program.
I didn't have any trouble after fiddling with it a bit, if anyone would like a tutorial, I'll gladly make the video, just comment anywhere on my channel or inbox me, I love helping people. (YouTube.com/Tenoshadow) Best Regards, -Corey/Tenos/Tenoshadow -Tenoshadow.
Audacity is a free, easy-to-use, multi-track audio editor and recorder for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux and other operating systems. The interface is translated into many languages. The version currently hosted here is 2.1.0 (March 2015).
More recent versions than this are available from. Audacity is free software, developed by a group of volunteers and distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
Programs like Audacity are also called open source software, because their source code is available for anyone to study or use. There are thousands of other free and open source programs, including the Firefox web browser, the LibreOffice or Apache OpenOffice office suites and entire Linux-based operating systems such as Ubuntu. This is excellent software. It's great for removing noise and clicks from old audio files. It's awesome for mixing multiple tracks down to a stereo file.
I use it for speeding up spoken word tracks without increasing the pitch. Cutting and cross fading is easy. The equalization is very good. I can't be used on-the-fly but I quickly got used to the preview mode which can be set to any part of the track. It does a great job of exporting tracks to compressed audio formats.
