Audio is nearly impossible to hear in game

When I boot up the game on steam, there is no sound whatsoever. I have the computer unmuted at all times, raised to 100%, and have the in-game volume up at max with music and everything on. I have been struggling to figure out how to fix this and have come up empty. If I were to give an approximate date for when this happened, it would have to be around three months ago. I don’t know what’s causing this, and I don’t know if I have to uninstall the game and reinstall it to fix it. If I do have to do that, my main concern is will doing so delete all my progress and ships? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

How would I take a screenshot in game? I’m not fairly antiquated with hot keys that allow me to do that. I’m on a Windows laptop.

Once the game launched and in the Hangar, you can press the Key directly on the Right Side of “F12”, the “Print Screen” key will take a Screenshot and if you look in the ChatBox on the Bottom Left Corner of your screen, it will indicate you where the screen has been saved.
