  1. Windows 10 Why does Microphone Privacy Setting also affect Line In ?


    The production NexGen computer is now able to record audio from the console.The sound was being ‘blocked’ by a Windows Microphone privacy setting.The Microphone setting also affects the Line In setting.Microphone is a red socket and Line is a blue socket.You would not expect the control of one to affect the other but it does.This may need some attention in the Windows program.The privacy setting was not flagged by windows troubleshooter.How this setting got flipped is a local operator issue we are addressing. :

    Camera and Microphone Privacy

    Hi Moustafa,

    This issue occurs due to permission issue, driver issue, license for an app is out of sync with the license installed on the computer or if the app is not updated. To give permission to Camera and Microphone app, you may follow
    these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Privacy.
    • Look for Camera, make sure that “Let apps use my camera” is turned On. You may choose the apps that can use your camera as well.
    • Go back to Privacy and select Microphone, make sure that “Let apps use my microphone” is turned On. You may choose the apps that can use your microphone as well.
