How to Tell Where Sound is Coming From on Computer: A Windows 10 Guide

Have you ever been listening to music on your computer and wondered where the sound is coming from? Or maybe you want to change the output device to play audio through your TV or headphones instead of your computer’s built-in speakers. Whatever the reason, it’s easy to set up your audio output device on Windows 10.

To get started, look for the sound icon in the bottom right corner of your screen. Right-click on it and select “Playback devices.” This will show you a list of all the audio outputs your computer has, such as your speakers, headphones, or optical audio out.

If you want to change the output device, simply click on the one you want to use and select “Set default.” This will move all audio to play on that device. You can also check what’s currently being output by going to the speaker option again, right-clicking, and selecting “Open volume mixer.”

If you don’t see the output device you want, it may be because your computer doesn’t have that option, such as HDMI. However, if you do have HDMI, it should show up as an option in the playback devices list.

In summary, setting up your audio output device on Windows 10 is a quick and easy process. Just right-click on the sound icon, select “Playback devices,” and choose the output device you want to use. By defaulting to the device you want to use, you can enjoy your music or other audio with ease.
