    Wow, your help is much appreciated!

    I just tried creating multiple audio recordings using the "Voice Recorder" app to test if I can see the file size of the recording to be growing while I'm creating an audio file, but the file size seems to increase and then stop increasing...?

    I'm thinking of using a 3rd party app while at the same time also using the Windows built-in "Voice Recorder" app so that I've got a "backup" in case one of the recording apps don't work.

    You could use something like this. https://www.amazon.com/TRX-20-Direct.../dp/B000KL0XA6

    Another solution is to use a suitable pick-up which plugs into the PC. Like this (in the UK - but they're easily available) and extremely cheap - a few s or $s:

    Personally, I'd use Audacity rather than the Windows recorder:

    Thanks!

    How is Audacity better for recording phone conversations than the Windows built-in Recorder app?

    From what I've seen, with Windows Recorder the only control you have is either "record" or "stop", and little else as far as settings are concerned.

    I already use Audacity - which is open source - and I would always use that as my preferred choice of recorder, mainly because I can equalise the recording and see the wave form. If you look at its features, you can decide whether it would be of benefit to you or not. If not, then I'm sure Windows Recorder will do its job fine for you.

    I just had an idea:

    Is it possible to run two audio recording apps at the same time in case one of the apps doesn't work?

    It'd be like I'm using one of the audio recording apps as a "backup app".

    So I'd have Windows Recorder and Audacity running at the same time which would give me two .MP3 files of the recording.

    I have to confess that I've never tried it because whichever you use, it will work, so there's not much need to be over-cautious like that.

    The best thing to do would be to try it and see. On paper, as long as you're not saving with the same filename into the same folder then it ought to work. Whether the two would conflict or not, I don't know.

    Similar to what @Sualdam alluded to, there may be a greater chance of 2 applications conflicting with each other, and you lose all recordings, rather than 1 application losing it's recording.
    Depends on the type of applications, though.

    No problem with the two I use often:

    I didn't think about the two different recording apps conflicting with each other...

    I just had another idea:

    -- Using 1 app to record the audio on my Windows 10 Pro PC
    -- Using an app on my Android smartphone or iPad to record at the same time

    This way I'd have two different devices recording at the same time.
