Microphone not detected by Audacity

I am using a Windows 10 machine and trying to record on a USB mic (Fifine) with Audacity 2.2.1. I hear nothing when I play back what I recorded. I have removed the mic from the port to listen for sound, and I have also made sure that the settings, privacy, enable use of mic is activated. What else should I try?
