I would try changing the location to somewhere else in VLC as its default save location and do a quick test recording to see if it saves there.  If it does, then I'd exit out of VLC, restart it, then change it back to the desktop folder for the account you are running it under.

Also, there are much better screen capture tools for Windows.

Agreed, but I don't think that's what's actually being asked about here, but was used as an example of something that does automatically get placed on the desktop when activated.  If that's the case, we're definitely not talking about either the Windows 8 or Windows 10 screen shot function.

 

The way I read this based on the thread title and most of the original post is that VLC is not saving sound recordings to the desktop and settings make it look like it should be.  I've seen weirdness like this before where if I reset the settings, then change them back to what I want, it suddenly works.

What software are you using to try to edit these videos? Although editing these videos is against the law, there are forums that specialize in pirate software in order to do that.
