- In the Systray, right the Speaker icon and select "Playback devices" in the menu. This is opening a "Sound" window.
- On Windows 10, there is no entry "Playback devices". Instead, click on the entry "Sounds"
- In the tab "Playback" of this window, select the speaker currently used by the PC and click the button "Configure" at the bottom left.
- Do reconfigure your playback device.
In my case, my playback device was reset to "Stereo" although it should have been 7.1 Surround. This usually happens after an upgrade of its Realtek Audio Drivers.
