Audacity recording voice but no other sound

I’m having problems when recording. My microphone will pick up my voice but will not pick up any other sounds. I speak in the mic and it comes out clear, but if I play my guitar or do hand claps it won’t pick it up. Also, If I use my USB guitar cord it won’t pick that up either. And yes, i’ve selected the right mics and playback devices.

Make sure “Ehancements” are turned OFF.

Windows might be noise-gating (shutting off the audio during quiet parts) to reduce background noise.

Holy Crap!

I changed the enhancements and it made a difference.
