  1. Headphones’ problems on Windows OS 10.


    I recently bought some headphones. But when I plugged them in, they didnt work well. To tell the truth, I had bought an adaptor, where it can plug to both my inputs. The one is for microphone and the other for headphones. When I plugged them in and launched Fortnite, when I joined my friends‘ party, I couldn‘t hear them through the headphones. Their voices were using my Realtek Speakers. Everything else, such as the gameplay was through the headphones. The same thing with Discord, Rocket League and Viber. Can anybody tell me how that happened?

    Thank You.

    :)

    You seem to be convinced its a Win 10 OS problem. If it was only a Windows 10 problem, millions would be having the problem and they obviously are not. Please fill in the "My System Specs" as it helps us to try and help you. As you "just bought the computer" suggests its new and in Warranty. First step would be to contact the vendor as only the vendor can get it corrected under warranty. May even be a hardware problem and again its the vendor who can get that corrected. Many Laptops have a separate board for the I/O with cabling to the main board. That is one potential area.

    When you plug in a headphone, check the Sound Playback panel to see if the headphones are detected.

    Headphones’ problems on Windows OS 10.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
