Please follow the following steps:-
Open the classic Control Panel app.
Navigate to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Sound.
On the Recording tab of the sound dialog, select the desired input device from the list of available devices.
Click on the Set default button

Hope so your problem will resolve

first, goto vent setup voice-binds-speech tabs and set the output/input devices to the actual name of the headset you're using.

set the hardware-mixer to 'none' and test. then try setting it to the same name as the input device.

clik the 'recording' button and disable all of the unused devices. rt-clik on a device and first enable both 'show' options. then select the unused devices and clik disconnect

1. Make sure the service called "Capability Access Manager Service" is set to automatic and is running.

2. Make sure you look under windows 10 settings > privacy > microphone and turn on "Allow apps to access your Microphone".
