Windows 11 Mic Input for Wx Radio

That USB adapter seems like it would be a four connection unit.  That may be problematic.  I'd recommend something like this.  Simple microphone input.  Should act like your previous headphone jack.

Thank you!  I'll give this one a try.

That 4 pole TRRS cord or plug you posted from Amazon is not a good idea. It is 4 pole and might short out a standard 3 pole jack. Just get a standard Mono or Stereo 1/8" Male to Male cord to plug in at Walmart. If it isn't detected properly go into your Audio setting and specify it is a mic jack if you have to.

I have a deal for you that might solve all this. I have a Plantronics Mic and Speaker Usb dongle that has individual jacks. I will mail it to you for free if you want. I just tested it and it self installed and worked on my Dell Optiplex 7050 with Win10.

Thanks.  I cancelled that order.  I had been using a standard 3.5mm audio cord that went from earphone on the radio to the pink mic jack on my old windows 10d PC.  Thanks for the offer for the dongle.  I'll take you up on it.  I'll send you a private message. 

Also, how do I specify that it is s a mic jack in settings?   I've been trying and looking, but unsuccessful.

Garth Bock:
I think this is what you need. The device has to plugged in before you can do any changes...

    Select Start > Settings > System > Sound.
    In Input, go to Choose a device for speaking or recording, and select the device you want.
    To test your microphone, speak into it. In Volume, make sure the blue bar moves to make sure Windows hears you.

Hope this helps. Also....you bought it at BB ? I hope the Kiddies didn't force you to buy their Extended Warranty. Waste of money. I am not really welcome at BB because last year I over heard one of the BB Kiddies tell an older couple that they needed a Microsoft login to make Win10 work.....I interrupted (yeah couldn't help myself) and showed how Win10 works just fine without a logon. Later the couple had me come by their house and tune up the computer by turning off all the reporting crap and removing the bloatware that you can't deinstall from the app menu using Powershell. They paid me $200. Then back in the summer I was looking at Laser Printers there and overheard again a BB Kiddie trying to oversell a couple on a new printer. They told him they would think about it and he walked away. I went over and asked what was wrong with their old printer. First they needed to have a fax ability which most AIO's have and second the printer quit printing.....but still made copies. (yeah..what?). I told them it was probably a printer driver problem. Once again I got invited over to a very huge house. Took me about 5 minutes to reinstall the printer drivers and then set it up to print from their laptop wirelessly. Saved them from blowing money on a printer. They paid me $100 in cash. There are a lot of very wealthy people living around Branson that need computer help.
