I did. It didn't.

Steve. Try connecting your microphone to the device you want to route
your microphone speech to, then try to reconfigure your mic output and
see if it works. Cheers!

Didn't need to. Pressing show advanced options does that just fine.
The normal thing is to show only two devices. The problem is not that
I can't see the devices, I just can't rearrange them, and what's up
with this checkbox business?

Have you tried expanding the combo box with Alt+Down Arrow? This is usually
necessary in Skype to view all available devices.

Subject: [TechTalk] Windows update caused Skype audio settings problems

After my recent update to Windows 10 build 15063 (which I think is the
Creator update everybody's been on about for months now), my audio
devices in Skype have all been rearranged, and no matter what I do, I
cannot get them re-rearranged correctly. Here's what's happening.

In the Tools -> Options -> General -> Audio Settings dialog, the
Speakers selection combo box is OK, but in the Microphone section, two
devices are shown, and I don't want to use either of them. So, I
select the "Show advanced options" button, and now I can access all my
audio devices. Again, in the Speakers combo box, the correct device is
checked. Checked? There was never a checkbox there before. Now where'd
that come from? OK, it's correct, I leave it alone. But in the
Microphone combo box, there is a checkbox next to a device I don't
want to use. I have tried pressing the space bar on it to uncheck it,
tried that technique on the device I really do want to use, it does
not get checked, I've tried with real and virtual mouse buttons,
nothing changes. I did find a Remove button and two pairs of Up and
Down buttons. Remove doesn't remove anything. I can move things up and
down in either combo box, but I cannot change the status of the
checkboxes. And if that's not enough, after fiddling with the Up and
Down buttons with mouse-clicker controls in my screenreader, and then
saving changes, the settings revert back to what they were before I
started monkeying with them. What am I doing wrong, and how can I
straighten this out? The problem seems to be on a per-account basis
bec ause somehow I was able to fix it when logged in to another
account, but even then, it took me forty-five minutes to do so. So
until I can get this straightened out, I can't use Skype. Any
