How To Increase Mic Volume In Windows 10

If your voice can’t be heard over voice-over IP related services such as Skype then you might want to consider increasing the microphone volume on your Windows 10 device. This will allow the microphone to become more sensitive in picking up the sound which will result in your voice being clearly heard.
