Mic not working in some programs and games

I've been having a problem recently where my microphone does not work on certain games and programs like Steam and fortnite. When on steam and I go into the settings and find the mic and it displays but the level does not respond when I speak into the mic. The thing is I my mic works on teamspeak which is quite odd. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated, Thanks!

I may be wrong but this could be due to an outdated driver. Make sure that your mic has the latest driver installed just like your Windows has the latest updates. If this does not solve the issue, it is still possible that it is a driver issue but the new driver could be clashing with Windows or the games. Then, I would try to go back and install an older mic driver that used to work properly.
