Common Solutions to Fix ShareX not Working

Fix 1. Check the System Settings

Before checking the errors with the recording software, the first thing is to confirm that there are no hardware or system issues with your computer. You need to go through all the audio input and output drivers and make sure they’re enabled and updated.

1. Press “Windows + X” and select “Device Manager”;
2. Click “Audio inputs and outputs” to enable the Microphone and Speakers. If needed, right-click the driver and press “Update driver” > “Select automatically for drivers” to update the audio drivers.

Check System Settings

After you update the drivers, you need to ensure that in the Sound Settings, the input device for system recordings is set to the Microphone, and the permission for ShareX to access the Microphone is enabled.

1. Go to “Settings” > “System” > “Sound” and scroll down to the “Input” setting, choose “Microphone”.
2. Back to “Settings” and choose “Privacy” > “Microphone”. Make sure the “Allow apps to access your microphone” option is ON.

Fix 3. Change Audio Source

By default, audio input and recording are disabled in ShareX. That means the audio source may be set to none when you record the screen with ShareX. So to solve the ShareX not recording audio issue, you can change the audio source. The tutorial below will guide you to change the audio source to the right one.

1. Launch ShareX and go to “Screen Recorder options”;
2. Select the Microphone or your devices under the audio source. (Don’t set the audio source to “None” or “Virtual Audio Capturer".)

Part 2. Best ShareX Alternative to Record Screen with Audio

If the above-mentioned solutions are still not working on ShareX no sound issue or there are other recording problems, you can try an alternative recorder to ShareX to start recording. Here I’d like to introduce a hassle-free video and audio processing tool (WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro), which has a built-in screen recorder that is efficient for screen and audio recording with high output quality.
