No longer able to record speakers

Windows 10 Pro
Audacity 3.3.3

Today I have attempted to record my speakers output, and all it will record is my microphone. This has always worked in the past.

In Audacity Audio Setup I have only the choice of “Microsoft Sound Mapper - Input” or “Microphone”.

In Windows Settings Sound Output I have Speakers (the only choice).

Recent additions to this laptop have been…

Elgato Stream Deck
StreamLabs Desktop

I can only think one or more of these has upset the applecart.

I’m not a wiz with computers, can anyone help me to restore order here.


So speaker (loopback) as an input only appears under Host: WASAPI.

Ahhhh - the Host setting was MME

Cured now thanks
