and the microphone option is not popping up
It won't see the microphone, but it should see the Presonus interface. It may not say "Presonus", but it should say "USB... something".

I think Windows 10 has two different tabs, one for speakers/headphones Playback and the other for Recording.

This is the one in Win7, but I think they're similar.
