How to record streaming music with Audacity 2.4.2

Post by CluelessInSeattl » Sun May 09, 2021 4:33 pm

I'd like to be able to record streaming music, but the Audacity 2.4.2 I have installed on my laptop running Windows 10, only records through the built in microphone on the laptop. How can I change the settings so that it will turn off the microphone and record directly from the music stream?

Perhaps a screenshot will be helpful:
