Yazak News and Tips

Yahoo closed down their Chat Rooms Dec 14th 2012 Good news you can still use YazServ chat rooms.

Windows 10

Yazak will work fine on windows 10
but for Voice to work you will need to run this fix click here to get it

Also you might need to right click on speaker at bottom right in taskbar and
select Troubleshoot problems if your sounds not working.

You could also setup microphone,
Right click on speaker at bottom right in taskbar and select Recording devices

Then Select Microphone and then click on Propertise then click Levels
and Move Microphone Boost to +30.0 db
And I also set Microphone to 100

You might wish to use lower settings.
