Setting up a new surround sound configuration can be daunting as too many speakers have to be installed correctly. Fortunately, Windows 10 includes a small built-in test program that can help you set it up. See how you can access it.
First, right-click the speaker icon on the taskbar and select "Sounds" from the menu that appears.
(You can also open it control Panel and click Hardware and Sound> Sound.)
In the window that appears, select the "Playback" tab, then select the surround audio output device you want to try from the list. In many computers, this will be a device called "Speakers". Do click on the "Configure" button to configure the selected one device you.
(You can also right-click the device in the playlist and select "Configure".
A "Speaker Setup" window will open. In the list of audio channels, select the configuration you want to try. For example, if you have 7,1 Surround Audio connected and want to try it out, select "7.1 Surround".
Then click the "Test" button just below the channel list. You will hear a test beat played each time through all the speakers in configuration. As each speaker plays, it will be highlighted on the chart.
If you want to stop the test process, click the "Test" button again, which will say "Stop".
If you want to try out individual speakers, do so click in them at chart located on the right side of the window. When you click on a speaker, a hit will be played through that speaker. This can help you figure out if your speakers are installed correctly.
After that, you can press "Cancel" or close it window with the "X" button in the corner. Then close the "Sound" properties and move on.
You can also click "Next" and go to the wizard to tell Windows which speakers you do not have connect, if this is necessary.
