|That's not a "microphone". A microphone is a physical object that you would dangle in front of the speakers (producing a very crude recording). |
Windows 7 has inbuilt software called "Sound Recorder" which just happens to have a microphone icon. This records directly off the output of your sound card. If you type Sound Recorder in Windows 7 search you should find it. The file location is:
"C > Windows > System32 > SoundRecorder.exe".
You can make a shortcut to it and click on it when you want to record something.
If by any chance it's gone missing, this freebie is good (probably better):
Both "Sound Recorder" and "HDOgg Recorder" produce a file containing whatever is being directed to your speakers. If you go for HDOgg I can probably help with any queries because I use it myself.
Audacity is fine and it can be downloaded. It is far more ambitious than those suggested above. If you just want to make a simple recording then Windows Sound Recorder is a good start.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
