Hi there,

As of recent my microphone has stopped working with all apps (discord, skype, chrome, in-game etc). I've tried removing the headphones I play with (usb connection) and plugging in a jack connected set of headphones, however the issue is still present regardless of what mic I use.

If I go into my recording settings and select to "listen to the device", it works fine and I can hear myself clearly, however when I try to use the mic for anything else, it just reacts as if there's no mic input.

The headphones I use are the Razer kraken 7.1 Chroma and have alternatively tried the HyperX Cloud IIs. I updated my sound drivers as well as the Razer Synapse to try and fix it, however no joy.

As someone who likes to play a lot of online games with friends, it's quite frustrating to simply not be able to speak. Any help would be appreciated.

A printscreen of my sound settings: http://prntscr.com/jxoj3g

EDIT: Solved - After a Windows 10 update, all privileges to apps were turned off. Start > Settings > Privacy > Allow apps to access your mic: On
