is sound recorder/voice recorder still viable in windows 10

i currently use windows 7 and use sound recorder heavily to record audio.
i know in windows 10 it was renamed voice recorder.

does voice recorder in windows 10 work as reliably and simply as sound recorder in 7?
i have heard various reports on the same simple functionality.
will its functionality in 10 depend on the sound card type used?

i recently purchased a very cheap inexpensive laptop as a secondary unit and voice recorder does not work.
i rely heavily on its windows 7 predecessor and to loose the same functionality i have become used to would be a huge inconvenience.

thanks in advance for any input

forgot to mention....
by functionality i mean playing a video for example and being able to record audio internally, not necessarily via a plug in microphone.

you could use winamp's write capability? You could perhaps both play the vid in winamp and record it's sound as a wav file.
