    Stereo Mix no longer appears.


    Windows 1803 (OS Build 17134.48)

    The machine was recently returned from an IT company who removed a corrupt update because it refused to boot up.

    I now find that Stereo Mix is not showing up in the audio windows which opens on right clicking the 'speaker icon on the taskbar.

    This is what is displayed:

    And this is Volume Mixer:

    There's no corresponding window for Recording devices.

    I have no idea what has happened. Can anyone help me to resolve this problem please?

    :)

    Windows 10 Stereo Mix

    Hi Nicholas,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps:

    Method 1:

    Try the following steps to enable the stereo mix and check if that help.



    a) Right click on the audio icon in your system tray and select “Recording Devices” to open the Recording device settings in the “Sound” window.



    b) In the pane, right-click on a blank area, and make sure both “View Disabled Devices” and “View Disconnected Devices” options are checked. You should be able to see the “Stereo Mix” option appearing.



    c) Right-click on “Stereo Mix” and click “Enable” to be able to use it.



    This should enable the “Stereo Mix” on Windows



    Method 2:

    If the issue persists then I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the sounds card driver and check if it helps.


    • Right Click on Start, Select Device Manager.

    • Find and double-click the category of device whose driver you wish to uninstall.

    • Right-click the device, and click Uninstall.

    • Windows will prompt you to confirm the device’s removal. Click
      OK to remove the driver.

    • After the uninstallation is complete, reboot your computer as soon as possible


    Hope the above information helps. Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further. Thank you.

    Windows 10 Stereo Mix

    Thanks for the response Anju.



    I followed your instructions to the letter. Method 1: No Stereo Mix even with the show disabled and disconnected boxes checked.

    Method 2: I uninstalled one Microsoft and four NVIDIA High Definition audio devices and rebooted my computer. The re-start took considerably longer than usual to come up to the login. I tried again to see if the Stereo Mix
    was re-instated but it was not there. Maybe I need to do a registry addition, if the audio drivers actually support the Stereo Mix audio source, but I do not know what that could be.


    Thanks, again
