Windows 10: Low Audio Since Update

    Low Audio Since Update


    I've noticed since the latest update my sound seem to be incredible low compared to before. I use headphones and used to be able to hear perfectly with volume at 20...now I have to turn it up to 70 to hear clearly. I've looked threw sound settings and can't figure what I can change to fix it like it was before. Is there anything known that I could change?

    The first thing I look for in such problems is the hardware volume control on Notebook keyboards and some Desktop keyboards [many of the last several years]. The hardware should be adjusted first, I choose a maximum, then work with the software/Windows/vendors controls.

    Right click the "Speakers" icon. Select "Sounds" Go through the tabs thoroughly. Could be an option checked on the "Communications" tab.
    After that update my son was cursing that 1803 had done that to him. My update happened a few days later, and my microphone
    was muted when we went to play a game. Couldn't play because I couldn't figure what was wrong. Next day I found that the under the "Playback" tab - when my combo earphone/mike was plugged in - and right clicking "Speaker" properties there was a microphone volume slider that was set to zero. Never saw that before. That solved that.

    On my communications tab it says do nothing, and my levels says 100 on the properties.
