Line-in audio problem


I have a Dell Inspiron 7537 with Windows 10 64-bit (with all updates to date). I am unable to hear the line-in audio on my laptop's built-in speaker while I am able to record the same line-in audio using sound recording software Audacity. There is no hardware problem with my laptop's built-in speak (when I play audio files/YouTube it works well). The only problem is the audio received through line-in is not routed to the laptop's speaker.

Thanks for any help!

Re: Line-in audio problem

Do you have Stereo Mix set as the Default "Input" (Recording device)?  If not, that could be the reason.
