Duplex means input AND output. If you don't need a microphone you can probably set it to output only.

Oh, no I need the microphone for Viber Skype, Audio Recording. So Duplex analogue is the default?

Curses, booting up Pep normally, and it again can't write to Windows. So it seems it must be a problem with Peppermint. I made a /swap file (not during installation, before; physically between Peppermint and Ubuntu partitions) but it doesn't mount it, and creates a 1 gb swapfile in file system / Also notice a SD card isn't auto mounting- I have to click on it in file manager

The default now is to have a swap file, not a swap partition. However if you'd set the partition to swapon before installing I'd have expected it to pick up the partition and use that instead.

An SD card is not supposed to automount unless you tell the system to do that. The best way to do it is by editing /etc/fstab Be aware that if the SD card is absent it could then delay your boot for a couple of minutes.

Okay, Peppermint is doing EXACTLY what it should .. mounting the windows partition read-only:-
Quote
/dev/sda3 on /media/mako-pep9/OS type fuseblk (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,default_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096,uhelper=udisks2)
when it sees a problem with the Windows file system (to save doing any damage).

The problem here is windows or the drive it's on .. have you disabled "fast startup" (aka. hybrid boot) in Windows . see here:
https://www.linuxuprising.com/2019/01/fix-windows-10-or-8-partition-mounted.html
which could be why it's continually being flagged as active/unclean

An SDcard will not automount in Peppermint because we don't have an automount feature .. we had it in 7/8 but decided it was a pain and dropped it, but if you REALLY want it, see here:
https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,7101.msg72677.html#msg72677

Mounting your swap partition instead of the swap-file .. we can do this if you want, but please start a new topic with a descriptive title, it doesn't really fall under this topics description. Forum etiquette asks that you have one question per topic and that topic have a descriptive title .. so others searching with the same problem can more easily find a known working solution if/when that topic is marked (SOLVED) .. TIA :)

AHA, Fast Startup WAS turned back on, obviously by some update, though I thought I checked it after the first time it wouldn't write.
 Well, why did booting up in recovery mode allow NTFS writing? It didn't allow writing to ANY Windows partition then (6), they can't all be "dirty".  First thing I did was shut off Fast Start-up, Hibernation, Secure Boot, Smartbyte, anything that could interfere with dual boot, or any harware/bios updates and only do full shutdowns.


Oh, when it asks "Do you want to empty trash" on closing Windows partitions, should I say yes or no? Any Peppermint tricks for Dells, had a douzy of a time getting both volume control and brightness Function keys (F2,3,11,12) to work correctly. Any way to force text editor to always save as .txt? To get it to default boot to Windows (better with all off their updates), you would edit Pepperrmint Grub: default boot (SDA,12) to (SDA,3)?

Also try a forum search for brightness, volume and your model of Dell.
