Hello Matthew,

Wasn't it better to name the feature "audio recording device access"
instead "microphone access", mentioning the microphone in the
description text? Current feature name is quite confusing, some users
of my product are wondering why it affects other recording lines.

And 1803 update often turns mic access off automatically, with no
prompt or even a warning. Does it performed intentionally too?

Regards,
Eugene


Definitely intentional.

Hello Matthew,

Windows supports the first two natively via Start > Settings >
Privacy > Microphone; I believe there are ways to set these via group policy 
as well

In fact, Windows blocks access not only to microphone endpoints, but
to all recording ones. Is it implemented intentionally, or there is a
bug?

Regards,
Eugene
