how to increase the microphone volume

How do you increase the volume on the computer.  it has very low voume and is not really useful as is.
Hello ToniWilliams2,

I'm John an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user like you. I understand you're having problem with low microphone volume.

Press Start, Search Control panel
Select Hardware and Sound, Click Sound
Under Recording tab, Right click on the active microphone then Properties
Click Levels Tab. Adjust the boost level

If it doesn't work, select the ‘Advanced’ tab from the ‘Microphone Properties’ window and uncheck the option ‘Allow application to take executive control of this device’.

Kindly test now your microphone

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further concerns.
