  1. Microphone Volume Swings

    It's been a while since it started. My microphone keeps auto-adjusting, lowering down, and everytime it does, anybody who listens to me can barely hear me, so everytime I have to manually set it to high volume in order to be heard.

    I tried anything that I could read of on google... with no change whatsoever.

    Right click on Speaker icon (Volume settings) on the Taskbar

    Choose Recording Devices

    Click on Microphone and open the Properties

    Finally, move the slider to choose the level. It will raise the Microphone and Microphone Boost option.
