You all remember me being a bit whiny because my plugged in external speakers didn't work with windows 10?
Of course you do.
Well, the problem has been fixed :)
My awesome genius daughter, K, found a youtube tutorial that tells us, (those of us who want to know), how to fix the problem.
So I clicked on the link she sent me, which reads
How To Fix Windows10 Headphones/Sound Issues!
It's the one by BadKat, essentially for headphones, but also works for external speakers that plug in via a headphone jack.
I watched the tutorial and it went quite quickly, with me going "what? wait! damn..."
(To hear him properly, you need to set your speaker icon to 100%)
So I enlarged it to full screen, and clicked on play again, but kept my cursor over the play/pause button (icon?) and with every instruction, I paused it while I wrote down what to do.
Ha Ha! I am clever!
K told me to turn off the computer, plug in the speakers, start up again, then follow the instructions.
Which I did.
And it worked!! My speakers are operational again.
I'm a happy little vegemite!
Where have all the pumpkins gone?
