Help! My Virtual Students Can't Hear Me

Windows 10 has a tendency to mute video conferencing mics each time a computer is restarted or turned off. This guide will walk you through the process of unmuted the webcam mic. Generally, the computer has at least three mics, however, it's a fairly easy process to identify and unmute the mic that has been muted.
