I can tell you the procedure for Windows, if this is the OS of your laptop:
Choose the host --> Wasapi
Choose Recording Device -> "Speaker" + >your audio device name> + "(Loop back)"
4. On error, check the sample rate settings, both in Audacity and the
control panel (enter e.g. "Sound" in the start menu search box)
I hope that helps.

I am a novice with Audacity, but really like it. I have used it mostly for
transposing keys of songs when needed, but I would like to start recording
from my laptop. I tried to record by hitting the record button in the
but the computer mic was being used rather than recording the audio from
computer. Can you please tell me how to set up so I am recording from the
software and not the computer's mic?
