In the latest version of Windows 10, the OS refuses to save any of my playback device's enhancements, which are applied under their Properties. This happened before I reinstalled Windows 10. Now I have a fresh install and the problem still persists. The drivers are updated and this happens with multiple different playback devices.

Does anyone know a fix?

Thanks in advance.

Hi lpcrierie,

can you tell us what exactly you mean by playback devices, I'm not sure if you mean a media player (software) or an attached media playback device? (hardware). o_O

Hardware, like what you would find if you right-click the sound settings in the system tray and click "playback devices."

It is still a little vague, what type of media and what apps are you using?. Have you iinstalled any 3rd party software or are you using the on-board software provided by Windows?. o_O

Please take the time to provide a full description of what problems you are having with the hardware and what type it is, a DVD player or a USB stick with media on it for example!. ;)

Headphone (aux) jack via monitor for a sound system and a bluetooth dongle for a pair of wireless headphones. I'm using all sorts of apps. Steam, numerous steam games, same goes for Blizzard. Firefox, iTunes, all with Nvidia's sound driver. All sound drivers are up-to-date. I tried reinstalling the drivers, I tried rebooting the system and I tried reinstalling Windows 10 completely. Tried multiple playback devices, tried multiple audio outputs and Windows 10 itself is fully up-to-date. I even tried the onboard Realtek sound driver instead of Nvidia's. It was all to no avail.This is all on a desktop computer. No DVD, Bluray or USB drives are involved.

Never mind, I figured it out. Under the Advanced tab, I had Exclusive Mode options checked, which allowed applications to disable my enhancements. Also, both Enhancements and Exclusive Mode options revert to default when Nvidia driver updates are installed, which I was unaware of as well. Thank you for your help anyway.
