  • By default, the Sound Recorder in Windows 7 to save in .wma format. However, you can save it in .wav format by using this command:

     

    Go to Start, type soundrecorder /file outputfile.wav in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

  • Open a CMD window (type CMD from the Start)

    CD to C:\Windows\System32        (or to where the soundrecorder.exe file is)

    soundrecorder.exe /file outputfile.wav

  • This solution also worked for me.  However, I would like to know if there is a way to make WAV the default output.

    With the solution as given, it is necessary to enter the command string each time to get an output WAV file.  I even tried setting a desktop shortcut to the command string, but it still reverts to WAV file.

    Thanks!

  • I haven't tested it, but if Linda Yan's solution is right you could just open notepad and type:

    "soundrecorder /file outputfile.wav"

    then save the file as "something.bat".

    When you click it, it will execute the command as if you had typed it yourself!
