  1. Microphone issues


    Windows 10 does not have any apparent way to adjust the volume on microphone input. You can select the microphone source and that's it.

    The only volume control is for speakers. ****? Where is the microphone volume control? It's not in Sound anywhere that I can find!?

    :)

    Microphone issues

    Hi Michael,

    Here are the possible reasons why you're getting an error "The microphone did not pick anything up" when using it:

    • Incorrect settings (microphone is not set as default device)
    • Corrupted or outdated driver
    • Faulty device

    For us to isolate the issue, we'd like to know the following:

    • Were there any changes made to your computer prior to this issue(e.g. Windows updates)?
    • Have you tried connecting other microphone to your computer?
    • Have you tried connecting the microphone to the other computer?

    In the meantime, we suggest running the Recording Audio Troubleshooter to find and repair problems with recording sound. We also suggest checking if your microphone is set as your default recording device. For troubleshooting steps, please see
    Geethu B's on this
    link.

    We're looking forward to your reply.

    • What are the troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    We suggest that you run the
    Hardware and Device Troubleshooter. To run the
    Troubleshooter, follow these steps:


    • On the search bar, type
      Troubleshooting
      and hit
      Enter.

      Hardware and Sound.

    • Click on
      Hardware and Devices
      to run the
      Troubleshooter.

    Update us on how it goes.
