Microphone Boost not available anymore in Windows 10


This Content is from SuperUser. Question asked by David.P

For many years, I used to have the option to enable/control a “Microfone Boost” level in the Windows Microphone Settings under the “Levels” tab:

Windows Microfone Levels

However, for some time now, that Microfone Boost slider has disappeared. This applies to all my various sound cards, both on-board and several external USB sound cards. Furthermore, the issue also occurs on a laptop which has completely different hardware from my main PC.

There are some typical instructions on the web on how to supposedly restore Microfone Boost, e.g. here. I have tried all of these several times, but without success.

Is there any other way to re-enable Microfone Boost?
