Manage Sound in Windows 10
Edited by Jay
Adjusting sound in Windows 10 was typically managed via the control panel, that is, until the April 2018 update. Now, users have the option of editing sound; output, input (microphone), and app volumes from the Settings App. One of the great features of Windows 10 is the ability to manage various options via the Settings Application. Having access to critical settings in one location is convenient, and makes for a more fluid user experience.
Many people use their Windows 10 PC for various multimedia functions, so being able to change sound options quickly is essential for maximizing their setup. For example, if you plan on editing audio, you might want to increase the sample and bit depth to ensure higher quality production. Also, if you intend to record audio with your PC, you may need to boost the microphone levels to capture the recording better.
In this VisiHow article, we're going to show how to manage sound options using the settings app in Windows 10. For this tutorial, we used a Clevo laptop, running Windows 10 Professional.
