    Hi, João Ferreira. Thanks a lot for your instructions. They are so helpful!

    I have a doubt about Teams Chat procedure: Once I copied and pasted the code, the next audio require tha I repeat the same procedure… It is not so productive… especially in the routine that requires receieving rquires all the time by Teams.

    Is there a way to let this option enabled all the time, without the necessity to repeat the same code every time you need to downloado th audio?

    Thank you a lot again

    Hi João!
    Thanks for sharing this tip.
    However, for me the blob:htttps line does not appear =\ I tried in Edge, Chrome and Firefox, and I only see .mp3 files.
    Tried to paste in a screenshot but couldn’t.

    What can be wrong?
    Many thanks!

    I tried copying the code into the console as instructed, and the download pop up did not appear. I want to know if this doesn’t run again.
