Equalizer settings in Windows 10

How do you get to the equalizer settings in Windows 10?  In Windows 7 I just click on the speaker in the lower left hand side of the screen on the toolbar, then click on the speaker, then click the Enhancements tab and select equalizer.  Not sure how to get to this in Windows 10.  I am running it on a WinBook tablet, not sure if that makes a difference.  Any help would be appreciated.  Would like to get more bass when I am running WMP and listening to music on YouTube.  Thanks.  I tried some of the recommended locations in the posts but still cannot find it.

The settings depend on the audio driver. If the win 10 driver does not support equalizing there will not be a tab under advanced.  There may be a tone tab that has bass & treble.

How did you get to that screen?  Do you need to have the headphones plugged into the device?

As I said the tabs depend on the driver your audio card has. MIne is IDT.  I did not have headphones plugged in.

You may want to remove the current driver and install the newest driver available in compatibility mode

To install in compatibility mode do the following:

Right click the installer>properties>compatibility>choose OS

I right clicked on the speaker in the lower right hand side of the screen and selected 'Sounds'. In there you get a  menu with the choice to select audio devices - I only have my speakers so I clicked on them, then on 'properties' in the lower right of this window. I then went to the tab in the new window labeled 'Enhancements', where there is a little scroll menu. One is labelled 'Equalizer'. Click on this and below some options come up, allowing you to choose pre-defined EQ setups. Clicking the '...' square allows you to customise your own setup. What a mission eh?
