Sound Recorder

Sound Recorder is a no-frills utility for creating and playing WAV files. If you want to use it, your system obviously needs a sound card recognized by Windows 2000 Professional, as well as an input source such as a CD player, microphone, and so on. The program lets you capture sound, edit it, do some rudimentary manipulation and effects, and save it for later playback. In the last couple of years, Microsoft has started to include Media Player with Windows, and automatically associating WAV files are now associated with that player instead. So, unless you specifically open a WAV file in Sound Recorder, it won't play there when double-clicked in an Explorer window.

Although Sound Recorder is not a full-featured Windows-based sound recording program such as SoundForge or CoolEdit, the simple sound files you create with it can be put to a variety of uses. For example, you can assign them to system events or attach them to email to a friend who can play WAV files on his or her computer.
