If your friends or family live far away, Skype is the best way to contact them. But, if the sound quality is poor, then the conversation will not go smoothly, so you need to increase the microphone’s volume. If you want to enjoy talking with your loved ones all day without interruptions, you need to improve the sound quality.

The steps below will solve your problem:

  • With the right mouse button, click on the speaker icon on the Windows 10 taskbar. In the small menu, click on the “Recording devices” menu.

  • In the new window, you will see the active microphone and that it is selected with a green tick mark.
  • Then, double click on “Microphone,” and you will be directed to the “Properties” window. There you will see five tabs, select “Levels.”
  • When you open the tab, you will see two options: Microphone and Microphone Boost.

You will need to modify these settings.

Moving the slider to the right can increase the Microphone boost up to +30 dB. After you have made the changes, don’t forget to click “Apply” and “OK.”
