  1. How to add a new microphone windows 10


    I have been attempting to stream (on twitch) recently, and have had concerns that my microphone is not up to par. In fact, I bought a new headset just because of this fear. However, now that I have the new headset/mic, I am beginning to believe that my mic is not the problem...

    Under recording, in sounds, I have "Microphone Array" and "Stereo Mix". This is even when I have my headset plugged in. Is there a way I can disable the built in microphones and exchange them for my new microphone? If so how?


    Any help is appreciated!

    :)

    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
