Recording a portion of the desktop using Powerpoint. Sound is not recording – fix the issue

STEP 1: Powerpoint uses the Windows Default recording device as it’s input. This is A HIDDEN FEATURE AND SO SOUND WON’T RECORD AUTOMATICALLY DURING VIDEO CAPTURE.

So go to control panel > sound > manage audio devices > Recording. Pick “stero mix” which has the image of a sound card as the default device.

STEP 2: Go to insert > screen recording > record. Then Windows + Shift + Q to stop

STEP 3: Don’t forget to turn off the “stereo mix” default option


Win key + G
