Re-enabling audio devices in Vista

This might be obvious to pretty much everyone else but I’ve just had an issue with audio devices in Vista so I thought I’d share the solution-just in case 🙂

I was trying to record some sound from my PC but it kept picking up sound from the built in mic which was quite annoying. So I went to the Sound section, right clicked the deivce and “disabled” it…it then disappeared from the list! Furthermore I now couldn’t record ANYTHING so I needed to get it back, but how? I had a little look around in Control Panel until a Bing search eventually led me here, which shows that you simply need to right click in the white space and “show disabled devices”…nice and simple 🙂
