That applies to the com port driver only, the CODEC driver might already
be installed on the PC or it downloads it from the Microsoft driver server.
The com port driver from Icom is actually from Silicon Labs.
In my case only the motherboard sound device is selected as the Default.

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. "

(it==WSJT-X ?)

"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


I would expect that WSJT-X would use 'USBCodec' because that is what I put into
