Locked Re: WSJT-X and Windows 10 Soundcard

Windows believes it knows best and sets the last installed/activated sound device as default wether you like it or not.  The 7300 sound device is not started until the 7300 is power up.  But depending on the 7300 driver, it might be deferred until a using application is also started.   
The Signa Link would start up when the PC is booted or the USB is plugged in. 
You will  like  need to get good at resetting the sound card default or power up the radio and have it plugged in before you boot up the PC.

Thank you everyone.

Maybe I did not make myself clear. 

Yes the IC 7300 has a built in sound card. In Windows the laptop speakers and mic are set as default. Everything works fine until I start up the WJST software. Once it’s up and running it changes the default to the USBCodec. That’s my issue. When I used the same laptop and was using a music or movie app then start up Flidgi using a IC 706MKllG and a Signalink everything worked fine. It’s only since I starting using WSJT to do FT 8
