Open VLC Media Player and select “Convert / Save” from the upper right corner on “Media.” You can also use the “Ctrl+R” shortcut.

Clicking on the “Browse” button only requires you to select a location where you want to save the file to be converted.
If you do not specify a path, “Program Files / VideoLAN / VLC” will save the converted files. If you do not specify a path, “Program Files / VideoLAN / VLC” is where the converted files will be saved.

This is the most important step. We continue from step 2. Under the “Settings”  you find the “Profile” column, then click on the drop down menu. You then scroll down and choose “WAV”, since you are converting to wav. If you don’t find the wav profile, you need to add it. Click on the last icon which is the last one on the Profile option.

Click on browse option. You will find the label with the name “File Name”. You need to enter the converted file name here, it can be the same name of the file you are converting or another name.
