How do I fix this audio problem in windows 10?

I'm trying to play music/sound files in my game I have (Team fortress 2) and I've been trying to get the "Stereo mix" to work in windows 10 to use to record sound from the speakers. It does not even appear in the list of recording devices even with the Show "Disabled/Disconnected devices" either. I tried installing the realtek audio codecs but the system does not even recognize the install. How can I get it so I can record sound from my speakers?

if using an hdmi cable for the display do note that audio over HMDI, might need in an video driver update it that case

If you are trying to record sound coming out of your speakers and the sound is originating from somewhere else (other than your computer) then you will need a mic plugged into the computer or better, a plug directly from the source to the computer.

If you are trying to record sound that is playing through the system's sound card (or sound chip), then that does sound possible to record it at the same time. VLC Media player (free) I think can make the recording from what is playing through the system though I have not tried it.

You might face some audio issues while using USB or HDMI as you need to set the external devices as default. Audio enhancements can sometimes interfere with the hardware drivers, thus it is important to disable them until a new driver update arrives on your PC.

To fix audio issues in Windows 10 by setting the default device option, just open Start and enter Sound. Now open the appropriate result and click on the Playback tab. Here find the suitable audio device and Set Default.
