    I've been trying to get my external microphone to work on windows for a while now but the only thing I've really found is to set my microphone to default in the sound settings, but every time I do that I can no longer hear anything through my headset. The main reason I want my microphone to work through windows is because every game I play my microphone does not work. Discord is the only thing that I've found my mic to work on, and I'm not really sure what to do, any help is good help

    Audio recording settings / microphone settings on skype not working

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    There is an option ‘Automatically adjust microphone settings’ in Skype. Try adjusting Skype sound in the application by following the below steps:



    a. Open Skype.

    b. Navigate to Tools > Options > Audio Settings > Microphone.

    c. Select the default device.

    d. Uncheck the ‘Automatically adjust microphone settings’.

    Also, I suggest you to adjust Skype sound in the control panel to fix the recording issues. You can do this by following the below steps:

    a. Open ‘Control panel’.

    b. Select ‘Sounds and Audio Devices’.

    c. Click on ‘Playback’ tab.

    d. Verify that nothing is set to mute.

    e. Verify that microphone is checked under the ‘Recording’ tab.

    Try updating Skype, if any update is available. Please follow the above steps and get back if the issue persists.

    Hope it helps.

    Error: "You need to set up microphone in settings" while trying to access microphone on Windows 10

    Hi,

    As you are facing issue with accessing the microphone on your device, we will help you with this issue.

    I suggest you to refer to the below post replied by Wasim Asad
    on August 18, 2015 to setup microphone on your device and check if it helps.

    Cortana can’t hear me – Microphone level keeps getting set to
    zero.


    Also, In order to check if your microphone is set to the default value, you must check it from the “Recording” tab.

    To access this option, follow these steps:

    • Right click on the volume icon and select Recording Devices.
    • In the window that opens, select the device which has the status Ready.
    • Click on the Set Default from the bottom of the window.
    • If you’ve done this correctly you should see the green mark on the correct microphone and audio level reacting to sound.

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of accessing the microphone for further assistance.

    Thank you.
