Windows - Microphone volume too low

December 2016



Issue


I have to speak very loudly in my microphone, as the volume gain is too low. Worse, I'm unable to access the "Advanced" settings pane.

Solution

  • Go to the Control Panel.
  • Sounds and Audio Devices > "Audio" Tab.
  • In the "Audio Recording" category select Volume > Connect the microphone up and click on "Advanced".
  • Check "Microphone Boost".
