    problem with microphone and skype in windows 10

    Hello ,
    I have a serious issue with using microphone in windows 10. A few monthes ago i upgraded to windows 10 and i started having problems with skype - i heared people talking to me but they didn't hear what i said in microphone . I'm using usb microphone that is built in a web-cam , and i didn't have such problems before i updated my pc to windows 10. I searched for every possible solution and it didn't work. I saw somewere that i need to disable microphone enhancements , but i don't see the enhancements tab in the options of my microphone , and i don't know what exactly to configure if i have USB microphone. I have russian version of windows 10.
    Please help me with this issue , because the only option that i see is to reinstall windows 8 on the computer and i really don't want to deal with it now..

    There are boost options too - 10db and 20db.

    You can test your mike using the Voice Recorder. Just type'record' into Cortana's search bar.
