How can I be sure that external microphone is detected?

2019-04-25, 8:49 AM

Hardware: Lenovo Y520-15IKBN (80WK009KHV)

OS: Latest Windows 10 x64


So I have this laptop and I have several headests but looks like external microphone are not working or not detected. I have a few combo cable and tested with these in several ways and it's still not clear that Windows should show up the headsest's microphone or not. Cause If I connect a headset and open up recording devices I only see the internal thumb micrpohone on the list while It looks like the sensitivity is okay. It should show up the external too I guess. How can I figure out this and check the microphones?
