This helped me I have had this problem for 6 months I just assumed that it was a hardware problem and I finally decided to try to see if it was just my settings and so I searched up “How to fix volume distribution windows 10”

Long story short thank you


Thanks for these clear instructions. However, it didn’t work! The right channel is missing in playback on my machine, and adjusting the balance doesn’t help. I’ve found no reason for the channel to be absent.

However, I did, years ago, purposefully load all the sound into one channel because I only had one earbud at the time. Maybe this change is persisting somehow beyond all the settings I can see?


You’re absolutely correct. I was scouring the comments specifically looking for this, before I commented.


Thanks mate. Helped me very much.

Thanks mate, well done, that was driving me nuts


Hi John,

I’ve updated the steps. Hopefully it helps. Cheers!


Thanks Melanie. I’ve updated the steps as your suggestion


Thanks Hardono for the detailed pictures. I think windows options have changed a little since you posted this. I hit a dead end when there was no “balance” button, but then found it though Melanie’s shortcuts. Not sure why MS likes to hide useful features like this. Thanks Hardono and Melanie! Exactly what I needed.


I read this article. I think you put a great deal of exertion to make this article. Keep it up!

“First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to
ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear
your head before writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my
thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just
seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
Appreciate it!”


Dude, I’ve had a blown speaker on a perfectly fine laptop that I am not using to listen to music, but the average male voice in a youtube video for school buzzes and pops like crazy.

A quick way to get to the speaker properties on Windows 10 home– right click the volume icon in the system tray, then choose Open Volume Mixer. Click the “Speakers” icon, and it will open up the window in step 4 above. (my options in windows home are different than the pro version apparently.)
Life saver though. I just replaced the battery yesterday to try to stretch another year or two out of this otherwise fine laptop and now I’m set. Much appreciated.


Windows 10 will not be able to save the difference configured between left and right Speaker.
If you set Volume Level below the difference, Windows will either arrange the left or the right slider to the new minimum.

For Example if you set a Balance Level of 34 to the Left Speaker and 46 to right Speaker.
The configured difference between left and right speaker will mismatch/vanish, when you set the Volume Control below 12.

Further Example: If you set a Balance Level of 34 to the Left Speaker and 46 to right Speaker. Then you set Volume Level to 0.
The Balance isn’t saved anymore and when you’ll raise your volume Level again. There is no difference Level of Volume Control at all

So this isn’t a very clever and satisfying solution built for ages.
It is just for this moment at all.

A more long lasting solution would be installing the native software for your SoundCard/Device.
Because their software should be able to workaround problems like this.

When I try this, both left and right volumes automatically match each other, making it just a more complicated way of changing the device volume. any ideas?

You’re welcome, Michael!

Have you ever used Audacity? It’s a free software to edit audio. Perhaps it could help you analyze the volume of each channel.

Thanks Hardono and your method worked fine on the Line Input. I was doing this because I had a bunch of old cassettes which had been recorded with a very weak Left channel. I adjusted the Line Input balance to improve the balance of the input and it allowed the recording software (NCH Golden Records) to record the music properly. However when I stop the cassette player and turnover to the other side, something somewhere resets the Balance back to 56% on each channel. It’s as though Windows is only allowing the setting to be temporary. Or is could be Golden Records I suppose.
