  1. Desktop audio coming through my microphone.


    Hello there,


    My desktop audio keeps playing through my microphone when I'm in a call on Discord or Skype. It even does so when I'm not sharing my screen. How do I prevent this from happening?. I found some tutorials online, but that didn't work out well. When I right-click the speaker icon on the bottom-left corner of my screen I can't see the tab "Sound" and I also can't find the settings menu "Playback Audio Devices". My microphone is connected to my headset so I think the problem lies there. Can someone help me out?

    :)

    Hi Frederick,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you have an issue with microphone.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    To understand the issue better, I would need more information from your end.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    • Did you check by connecting the
      microphone on a different computer?
    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:

    1. Incorrect Microphone settings.

    2. Corrupt driver.

    Try the steps listed here:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to run Recording Audio troubleshooter which will find and fix common issue.

    • Press Windows Logo keys from the keyboard.
    • Type “Troubleshooting” in the search bar and press “Enter”.
    • In the “Troubleshooting” Window, click on “View All” on the left pane.
    • Click on “Recording Audio”.
    • Click on “Advanced” and then click on “Run as Administrator”.
    • Click “Next” and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the troubleshooting process.
    Method 2:

    Make sure that the microphone that you are using is not disabled and is set as default in the computer. Follow these steps to check this:

    • Right-click on the volume icon and select “Recording devices”.
    • Now, right-click on an empty space and select, “Show disconnected devices” and “Show disabled devices”.
    • Select “Microphone” and click on “Properties” and make sure that the
      microphone is enabled.
    • You may also check if the microphone that you are using is
      set as default
      .
    Method 3:

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to download and install latest audio driver from the computer manufacturer website and check if it helps.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.
