From the opened box and click on the Speakers, it should open the “Speaker Properties” from there go to “Enhancement Tab” and tick the “Loudness Equalization” save and exit. It significantly increases the Windows sound, and for sure you will feel it too.
Note: The option that says “Virtual Surround” is useful while listening through a Headphone, but it significantly does lower the Sound Volume.
