Many Windows 10 users reported that after the installing of KB4497934 (OS Build OS 17763.529), the Loudness Equalization feature is nowhere to be found.

He described the following issue:

I installed the  KB4497934 update today. Now, I can’t find how to get into the Loudness Equalization. When I right click the speaker icon in the system tray, “Playback devices” has disappeared from the menu. I want to equalize the sound at the same level when I’m streaming radio stations instead of constantly having to turn the volume up and down. Is the Loudness Equalization feature gone?

Probably, the user refers to this option from Speaker Properties. Also, it look like this is an important feature for some.

What happened with Loudness Equalization?

Like the OP said, it is possible that the Loudness Equalization was removed. Hopefully, it was moved to another subcategory of Speaker Properties.

Microsoft likes to make changes in Windows settings and menus and sometimes forgets to inform Windows 10 users about them.

Also, keep in mind that menu and settings configuration depend on the sound software you installed on your PC. This feature is not available on all PCs, as another user well stated in a reply to the original post.

However, for the time being, Microsoft has yet to come with a solution or an explanation for the issue.
