Enhancement tab missing on Windows 10

What should I do if my microphone Enhancement Tab missing?

  1. Reinstall/audio driver update
  2. Check your hardware
  3. Try turning on the audio-related services on Windows 10
  4. Change the settings for your sound card vendor.

1. Reinstall / audio driver update

The driver problem on Windows is not entirely new; in fact, we have Bluetooth damage and other issues because the video driver is damaged/lost.

I would personally recommend HP Beats Audio Driver as it comes with a feature that automatically recognizes the sound card components and improves the sound.

To download and install HP Beats Audio Driver for Windows 10, follow the steps below,

  • Download HP Beats driver from HP’s Support page
  • Select the operating system and version
  • Expand the selection by clicking the Audio-Driver and click on Download


Personally, Beats HP has been very effective in keeping the bass and high-quality output. That being said, Beats HP is still based on proprietary or IDT High Definition Audio driver Realtek High-Definition.

Keep in mind that it is essential to keep your drivers updated on the health of your system. Because the process is long and annoying, we strongly recommend doing this automatically.

A much quicker solution would be to use a dedicated updater driver and fixer.

2. Check your hardware

  • Add the device to fix the Microphone Enhancement Issue
  • Launch Run by using the Win + R
  • Enter control.exe
  • After hitting enter, the Control Panel must be opened
  • Now head to Add device and select Hardware and Sound
  • Select your audio device and click Next
  • Restart your PC

As always, the first step is to make sure that the hardware is not malfunction and is well connected.

Check the physical state of microphone and cables that connect to the computer. Also, unplug and re-plug the device.

In the often time, you may try to connect a microphone to other Windows 10 devices and see if the problem persists.

Or, try to record the sound sample on another device.

If the mic is working on another machine but not on Windows 10, this problem seems to lie with the software. I would personally recommend the user to check the sound ports for fiber and other dust particles.

If you are in need of quality, I would suggest installing a dedicated sound card.

Again go to the sound settings and see if reappear additional tabs. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.

3. Try Enable Audio Related Services on Windows 10

  1. Open Windows Service

2.Head to the Windows Audio

3.double-click on the service and go to the General tab

4.Click on the Startup Type and select Automatic from the drop-down menu.


The audio-related services may likely have stopped or disabled on Windows 10. It may end up causing an additional tab in the property is a missing microphone,

4. Change your vendor Sound Card Settings

  1. Open the Control panel
  2. Click on the settings of the sound card vendor, Realtek HD Audio Manager in our case
  3. Select the microphone option and select the settings to suit your preference
  4. Once again, head back to the Recording Devices tab and see if there’s any Enhancement


Each sound card vendor offers its application. One can try to fix the problem by using the additional tab Missing sound card vendor manager.
