As you guys know that working from home has now become increasingly prevalent due to the pandemic, there is no doubt about the fact that the ability to talk with your colleagues over a computer is very important.
It is a fact that not every microphone has the same base volume that is used for transmitting your voice through your computer to your colleagues or whoever is on the other end.
Some of the microphones have a higher volume than others, and some of them have such a low volume that is so low that the person you’re having a conversation with cannot hear you clearly, correctly, or can’t understand exactly to what you’re saying.
In situations where the volume of your microphone is very low, the only solution to this problem is that you need to turn up the microphone’s volume.
Increasing the volume of the microphone that is attached to your computer is done with the help of an option that is present in all versions of the Windows operating system, even in Windows 10 that is the latest and surely the greatest as well.
There are a lot of who don’t know exactly where to find this option that will help them in increasing the volume of their microphone because this option is not readily available in front of your eyes.

While tinkering around with the boost, it is best to be in communication with someone and keep asking them for feedback regarding your microphone’s volume.
