  1. Spatial Sound defaults to "Off" after restart


    Hi.


    I bought Dolby Atmos and DTS from the Microsoft Store and set them as the Spatial sound by right-clicking the sound icon in the notifications tray and then selecting either from the menu. Both works fine but my problem is that every time a wake up my PC from sleep or restart it that setting defaults to "Off".


    Is there a way for me to prevent this behavior from happening?

    :)

  2. Spatial Sound

    Hi,

    The Spatial Sound feature is available in Windows 10 but by default, it has been disabled. To enable it, follow the steps below:

    • In the notification area, right-click on the sound icon.
    • In the context menu, click on Playback devices.
    • Select your playback device and then click on Properties.
    • Click on the Spatial sound tab.
    • Select the Spatial sound format you want to apply.

    Get back to us if there is anything else. We'll be glad to help.
