If you choose to connect external speakers to your Windows 10 laptop, you just have a few things to set up before you can start listening to your music. You only need to follow these steps:

  • Connect headphones or speakers to your computer by connecting them to the appropriate connection (often labeled with an earpiece or small speaker icon) on your laptop.


  • Right-click the volume button (which looks like a small speaker) in the notification area of ​​the taskbar and in the menu that opens, click Playback devices.


  • In the resulting audio dialog, click on the Speakers / Headphones item and then click on the Properties button.


  • In the resulting Speakers/Headphones Properties dialog, click the Levels tab, then use the Speakers/Headphone slider to adjust the speaker volume.

If you see a small red circle with a slash through it on the speaker button, tap on it to activate the speakers.


  • Click the Balance button. In the resulting Balance dialog, use the L (left) and R (ight) sliders to adjust the balance of sounds between the two speakers.
