  2. my head phone mic is not working in window 10

    Hello Jaxon,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10!

    I understand that your headphone mic is not working in Windows 10 operating system. I will certainly help you with the query.



    This issue might be occurring because the microphone might not be set as a default device or there might be any error in settings also. Hence I would suggest you to follow the below mentioned steps and check if that helps.



    Method 1:
    Recording Audio troubleshooter


    The built-in recording audio troubleshooter can automatically detect and fix most of the incorrect settings and errors that could cause issues with headphone or microphone. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if there is any
    issue with the microphone. Refer top these steps:


            • Open Control Panel

            • Click on Troubleshooting and select the
              view all option on the left pane

            • Click on Recoding Audio troubleshooter and follow the prompts.

    Try method 2, if the issue persist



    Method 2: If the Recording Audio troubleshooter do not fix the
    issue then I would suggest you to follow the below mentioned steps to set the microphone as a default device:


        • Right click on the “Sound icon” on the bottom right of the desktop screen

        • Click on “Sounds”, click on “Recording

        • Right click on “Microphone” and then click on “Set as default device

        • Click on “Apply” and then “OK


    Hope this information is helpful. Please write back to us if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.

    Supported phones for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview


    Your list confirms my phone is eligible, Lumia 521. The windows Insider App fails after ~ 15 seconds, restores data and gives me error 80073cf9. I trouble shot this and went thru all the steps mentioned on several websites including MS without any luck. Short of a hard reset, this is where I am now. Suggestions appreciated.
