    settings > privacy > microphone > 'allow apps to access mic'

    when this is off, sites do not work (like google hangouts, all else)

    im guessing that win10 is not disabling hangouts, but that's it's disabling chrome's access to mic entirely



    this is extremely bad UI/UX/HCI in win10

    you would most likely think that the apps under ''allow apps to access mic' are what is going to be disabled

    it took me forever to find out what was causing the random mic problem


    want to know the technical reasons for what win10 is doing exactly ?


    in the past i think there's been 2 or so mic problem, tho they were easily solved (all of which were caused by win10). i had tried asking on the web, but not a single person on the web knew how to do basic troubleshooting of the mic problems tho

    :)

    Mic. Stopped working after update Windows 1803 on 1st May. 2018.

    Hi ,

    I managed to fix it,

    • Hit Windows key and search for "microphone privacy settings"
    • Hit "Allow access to the microphone on this device"
    • Switch "Allow apps to access your microphone" to on

    Microphone not working

    Hey there Carissa, could you try this for me?

    Open Settings.

    Click on Privacy.

    Click on Microphone.

    Turn on the Allow apps to access your microphone toggle switch.

    After completing the steps, you also want to make sure to check the list and enable microphone access for the apps you want, if they're currently disabled. In the case the feature isn't enable, click the Change button and turn on the toggle switch.
