  1. Headset not showing as a Playback Device


    Whenever I plug in my headset it's detected, but the only playback device that I can select is my laptop speaker, I've already checked if its disabled in the control panel. Overall I can't find any solution to this problem.

    :)

  2. My bluetooth headset isn't listed in the playback devices list.

    Original Title: Bluetooth device in playback devices list Windows 10.

    I want to connect my Bose headset to my computer. The Bluetooth device list show them as paired. However my headset isn't listed in the playback devices list; so, I my computer can't send sound to my headset. How can I get my headset added to the playback
    devices list?

  3. Headset doesn't show up in playback or recording devices

    I've seen similar posts, but none of them have helped me.

    I recently bought a headset for use with my laptop, but when I connect it and open the sound tab, (right click on the sound icon in the task-bar and click playback devices) it only shows the speakers, and when I click on the recording tab it shows the laptop's
    microphone and a thing that says stereo mix, but not the headset's microphone

    If I right click then it shows that I have show disabled and disconnected devices turned on.

    I have tried going to device manager and uninstalling the Realtek High Definition Audio driver and then restarting my laptop, as well as updating the driver but nothing has worked.

    How can I see my headset in the sound playback and sound recording tabs?

  4. Headset not showing as a Playback Device

    Change Playback Device For Recording As Headset.

    Hi Gavenjo,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    If you want your voice to be captured from the headset and not your computer speakers, then you can change the Playback device in Sound Settings.

    Before performing the below steps, make sure the headset is plugged into the computer.

    Step 1: Right-click on the Sound icon from the
    Taskbar and click on Sounds.

    Step 2: Go to Recording tab > Right-click on empty space in
    Recording tab > Click on Show Disabled Devices.

    Step 3: Then, click on your headset and click on
    Set Default > Apply > OK.

    Give it a shot and let us know of any changes.

    If my answer has helped, then please upvote or mark as an answer.
