Windows 10: 'Enhancements' tab gone from Win 10 sound controls after Reset This PC

    'Enhancements' tab gone from Win 10 sound controls after Reset This PC

    Hi all,

    I'm using Windows 10 on a Macbook Air, and was having problems with Wifi. It wasn't a Bootcamp specific thing - there were plenty of other threads describing my exact problem from all sorts of laptop manufactures - and it appeared the only fix was the nuclear 'Reset This PC' option.

    So, I did that, and the problem was fixed! New problem - I now no longer have the 'Enhancements' tab in Audio Devices (seen here: How to enable Windows sound loudness equalization - gHacks Tech News) which is really useful for making sure one program isn't screamingly loud and the other barely audible.

    I have no idea what's gone on - it was there on first install, and the tab has completely disappeared after the Reset This PC and driver installation process.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi, what is your sound card - which driver do you use? E.g. Conexant, Realtek....

    If you're using a USB mike, that has its own chipset and driver.

    See discussion here:
    No Enhancements Tab under Sound in the Control Panel. Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    Feel free to search the forum for more on this.

    The sound card is a Cirrus Logic CS4208 (AB126). Unlike Realtek, Cirrus's website has no downloadable drivers, so I can't try a different one or attempt to roll-back

    I don't really understand how I could have the Enhancements tab in one install and now have it in the next, using the same driver package provided by Apple's Windows Support Software. It was kind of a fool's hope, but I installed the latest Realtek drivers just in case I could get the Enancements tab back (even though I don't have a Realtek soundcard), but no luck

    Anyone got any ideas

    Actually thread bumping and 'useless one liners' are forbidden by forum rules. Bootcamp is not something I know anything about, sorry.

Hello, I am currently using Windows 10 and I notice that my Realtek High Definition audio does not have a "sound enhancements tab" how do I add this feature? Thank you. Also, post what information I need to provide.
I updated every driver, and including Realtek to its "v7566" state. In the Sound properties, there is still no "enhancements" or any option for "sound fill". Inside the Realtek HD Audio Manager, there STILL isn't my "Enhancements/Sound Effects"...
