    The "Speakers" need to be reset as the default playback device.
    I had to reset mine after 1903 update.

    Go to Settings/System/Sound.

    Most likely, if you had Stereo Mix set as default recording device that will have to be reset too.

    The speaker icon reflects what is set as the playback device.

    Thanks for the reply,I checked as you suggested but everything was ok.I ran a troubleshooter and sent a feedback
    to Microsoft,so it`s watch this space for a reply.

    Change the Sound "Output" (Audio Playback Device) to something other than Speakers and then reset it to Speakers and see if that fixes it.

    Open Device Manager and uninstall audio device and driver, then reboot and let windows reinstall.
