Windows 10: My Headset Is Not Recognized Solved

    My Headset Is Not Recognized


    My computer doesn't recognize my headset and neither does Realtek.
    My microphone plugs into my headphones. The sound plays through, but the mic doesn't work.
    I've updated all of the drivers and still no luck.

    Anybody have a fix?

    Have a look under Privacy in Settings, on the left are selections for microphone...

    Which kind of headphones and microphone, which connections to PC ? USB phones and microphones work very differently for instance.

    Than you'd need an adapter like this: https://www.amazon.com/Damomon-Femal.../dp/B011IKHHTW
