  3. Unable to access the sound from other audio device after upgrading to Windows 10

    Hi Ali,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing the playback device after upgrading to Windows 10.

    This issue might have occurred due to change in audio settings/ corrupted or outdated drivers, we will help you with this issue.

    Step 1: I suggest you to connect the audio device to your computer and change the below settings.

    Follow the steps:

    • Right click on the sound icon at the bottom right corner of the taskbar.
    • Click on Playback devices.
    • Check if you are able to find the audio device you connected in, in the list of connected playback devices.
    • If yes, click on the icon and then click on Set default option.
    • Click on Apply and then on OK.

    Step 2: Isuggest you to update the audio drivers.

    Steps:

    • Right click on the Start button from the desktop and select
      Device Manager.
    • Expand Audio inputs and outputs, right click on
      High Definition Audio Device and click on Uninstall.
    • Restart and Windows will re-install the
      IDT High Definition Audio driver
      .
    • If it works fine otherwise try to search for the drivers with the help of model number of your computer from the Manufacturer’s website and install them.

    realtek speaker icon in the taskbar

    Hi. hotshot-gunner

    I'm Charles, an Independent Advisor trying to help.

    This mode is simple and practical, just follow these steps to make it appear:

    • Click on the Start menu, open the Control Panel and double-click on Sound and Audio Devices.

    • In the window that opens, check the box Place a volume icon in the taskbar and click OK.

    The sound icon will already appear in the taskbar. Another suggested method to activate the volume icon in the taskbar follows these steps:

    1. Right, click on a blank space in the taskbar and from the pop-up menu select the Properties option.

    2. In the Taskbar tab, in the Notification Area section, click on the Customize button.

    3. In the new window, click on the link Activate or deactivate system icons that you find in the lower part of the window.

    4. There, click on the menu adjacent to the Volume icon and make sure it is marked On. Click OK and then OK. Verify that the volume icon appears normally in the taskbar.

    Best Regards,

    Charles.
