To record sound computer, do the folowing:
Press Shift+H to open the Select audio host dialog
Down arrow to choose Windows WASAPI
Shift+I to open the Select device dialog, then choose the option with 
"loopback" in its name.
Now you can record sound from your computer, but not the sound from microphone. 
To record sound from computer, including microphone, do these step after the 
steps above:
From System tray, choose speaker and press Enter
Choose recording devices within the menu.
Choose the microphone you want to record from within the list, and press the 
properties button.
Ctrl+tab to the listen page, and check the Listen to this device checkbox and 
press OK.
Now you'll hear your voice from the speaker/ headphone, and you'll be able to 
record it, including computer sound

  Hello everyone,

  I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday season and that 2015 brings all of 
you love and happiness. 

  I've heard, that Audacity can be used to record not only our own voices, but 
can also be used to record sounds coming directly from the computer, much like 
the what you hear/stereo mix feature that comes with windows. Its rather 
difficult to find the what you hear/stereo mix feature in windows 8.1, but I've 
heard somewhere, that even if the computer doesn't offer this option, you can 
still do the very same thing, whith just audacity and the adjusting of a few 
simple settings within the preferences area of Audacity. Could someone who is 
familiar with doing this tell me how to record my computer sounds? For example, 
if I were recording a tutorial and I wanted my screen reader to also be 
recorded along with my voice, how do I turn this option on and off in Audacity?
