Realtek Audio Enhancement Tab Suddenly Missing

I have a brand new Windows 10 Laptop.  Two days ago I used the enhancement tab to make the volume louder; it worked fine.  Now the entire enhancement tab disappeared.  I have used the troubleshooter to reinstall the driver but that did not fix the problem. How do I get the missing enhancement tab back?
Press “Windows key + X”

Select “Device manager” from the list.

Now go to the “Sound, video and game controllers” section.

Here, you should search for “Realtek High Definition Audio” under the list of audio device drivers. Right click and select “Disable”.

Right click again and this time click on “Update driver software”

Opt for “Browse my computer for driver software”

Now go for “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer”

A window asking you to select the driver that you want to install for the device should now appear.

You might see a list of available drivers. Click on “High definition audio device” and then hit “Next”

When asked, select “Yes” and a confirmation window should appear indicating that the process has completed.

When asked to reboot, say yes.
