John. If you can state what is it about your sound card you want
to set, it migh help me come up with a simple write out for you.

If you search for something and there’s a
local result, it’ll be the first thing to come up .
After that then you start seeing things
from the web.
For example. If I search for something like
Then It’ll say
User Guide, File, Press right to switch
Change User Account Control settings, Control panel, Press
right to switch preview
Find results in apps
Explore NVDA user configuration directory, App, Press right to
Find results in settings
Manage user certificates, Control panel, Press right to switch
Other users, System settings, Press right to switch preview
Set up fingerprint sign-in, System settings, Press right to
Change your password, System settings, Press right to switch
Start Magnifier automatically after sign-in, System settings,
Press right to switch preview
Change your account picture, System settings, Press right to
Find results in search the web
user, See web results, Press right to switch preview
I used my down arrow to go thru
If I hit enter on any of them it’ll
bring me to the spot where I need to be to change that
setting or view that file.

who knows about the search in Windows 10 will, I hope,
address the question further. I have read that search
searches the Internet and, I believe the local machine
by default. the issue may well not be that what I’m
describing isn’t there, it may be a matter of how you
see local results on the machine itself.

Re: [TechTalk] Change sound card settings
in Windows 10
typed exactly what I would in Windows 7 to try
to find this.
Windows 7 I’d type “Change sound card
settings.” That does not work in Windows 10.
did typing “Sound card” as you suggested as I
just tried it.
does typing volume as it brings you to the
volume mixer but I could not get to what I
wanted from there either.
no… You can’t always compare Windows 7 to
are in different places and worded differently.
type Uninstall a , it automatically comes up
with “Uninstall an app”
you enter on that, it’ll bring up the uninstall
an app in settings which is not exactly the
same as Windows 7 either.
its accessible, but the process for uninstalling
is a bit different.
how about Windows keythen type sound
card. I use that method in Windows 7. In
the results list, is an item called
change sound card settings which places
you in the ;place being discussed.
Windows search is greatly underused and
in some ways, not well understood. It is
designed to help you find something even
if you don’t know the name. for example,
in Windows 7, if I type uninstall program
or uninstall a program in the Windows
search, I will find results that will put
me in the uninstaller, the same one you
get to in other ways.
I want to make sure my firewall is on. If
I type firewall into the Windows search
and look through the results, an item is
there named Check Firewall state.
of the main points of the start menus
search is to allow you to find things
quickly without plowing through layer
after layer to get there. Another
intention is to help you find things even
if you don’t know just what the thing is
I am describing the start menu search in
Windows 7, it is very hard to believe it
has lost these functions and abilities in
Windows 10. those who use Windows 10 may
correct me if I’m wrong.

Re: [TechTalk] Change sound card
settings in Windows 10
an easier way… which I found from an
article on another mailing list…
the windows key and type
system tray press enter on Speaker, then
press enter on open sound settings.
This will put you on your default
soundcard, so tab to, Properties, and
press enter to access the various tabs
way is to open the control panel, then
go to, Sounds link, and press enter and
you should be on the Playback tab on
your default soundcard if you have only
1 soundcard installed. If you have more
than 1 soundcard arrow up / down to
highlight the soundcard you want to work
Stay safe & take
Just once, I want a username and
password prompt to say: "Close Enough!"

[TechTalk] Change sound card settings
in Windows 10
just updated to Windows 10 and I can’t
find this setting anywhere.
did they move it?
I went on Windows 7 to change sound card
settings, I could select playback and
recording and choose what came for what.
did look at the volume mixer in Windows 10
but it wasn’t obvious to me as to where
