    Recording Phone Conversation To PC?


    I need the help of the computing experts on here!

    I want to make a phone call using my home phone and then record it so I can listen to it later.

    I thought the best way to do this would be by using my PC.

    How can this be done?

    I'm running Windows 10 Pro.

    Thank you!

    I forgot to say:

    During a call I'd like to record both my own voice and the other person's voice as well.

    I am not sure we can advise here as that is an illegal act in many countries, unless a law enforcement representative. It is permitted in UK PROVIDED you make it clear to the other person up front that you are recording this call and why.

    Thanks, but I'm not doing anything illegal.

    Federal law permits recording telephone calls and in-person conversations with the consent of at least one of the parties. See 18 U.S.C. 2511(2)(d). This is called a "one-party consent" law. Under a one-party consent law, you can record a phone call or conversation so long as you are a party to the conversation.
    Use speaker phone and a recording app.

    Thank you!

    Is there a built-in app or feature in Windows 10 Pro that can do this?

    Yes, 'Voice Recorder'
    (it'll be an open air recording, so you need a mic and speakers; I use 'voice notes' with a smart phone)

    Thank you!

    I just opened and created a test recording using the "Voice Recorder" app and it worked.

    Is it possible for me to see that the recording is taking place while it's being recorded just so that I can be certain the recording is being created?

    I'm worried about this happening:
    I'm thinking that I'm recording a conversation, but in reality a recording isn't being created and when I end a conversation there's no recording for me to listen to...

    I suppose...,

    Monitor the time lapse in Voice Recorder, monitor your mic input, monitor the 'autosave' process in the folder.

    That is what I would suggest and it is legal in The US as long as one of the parties knows that it is being recorded and since you are one of them it is OK. It would be illegal to say record your say room mates calls.
