Realtek audio driver v6.01.8467 works with built-in microphones. v18.104.22.16869 and v22.214.171.12433 disable these microphones. Of course, Windows is always automatically updating to the latest driver, and continually causing me to reinstall v6.01.8467, which is becoming a major annoyance. Does anyone know how to make these later drivers work with the built-in microphones? Thank you for any help and suggestions.
