Try this...
Right click on the speaker icon in your panel and open Properties.  That will open the PulseAudio Panel Plugin window and you will see "Run Audio Mixer."  Open that and check the Playback and the Output Devices tabs and ensure they are properly set & activated.

Right click on a blank space on the desktop, highlight Desktop and choose Icon Size.  You'll have three options: Smaller, Normal, Larger.  ;)

Welcome Aboard, dro3m!    ;)

You can start by checking for additional drivers.  Navigate: Menu > Preferences > Peppermint Settings Panel and choose Hardware on the left side menu.  Open "Additional Drivers" and let it search (may take some time).  If there is one you can install it from there.

A brief history of PeppermintOS...
the Scoop
Peppermint OS was initially conceived at the Black Rose Pub in Hendersonville, NC (North Carolina), USA during a night of drinking and discussion about the future of desktop Linux. Peppermint was originally designed to be a social media-centric distribution.[7]

Pre-alpha development builds consisted of a wide array of potential directions before the decision to fork Lubuntu was made. There was quite a bit of experimentation with KDE, E17, Adobe Air, and several different code bases during January and February 2010. Alpha builds using the Lubuntu 10.04 code base started in March 2010. Peppermint was released to a small group of private beta testers in April 2010 where it remained private until the first public release.

On May 9, 2010, Peppermint One was released.[1] In less than a week, it received over 25,000 downloads.[17] It soon outgrew its web host and switched to VPS.NET. VPS.NET became the first official sponsor of the Peppermint project.[18]

On June 20, 2010, Peppermint Ice was released.[19] It sported Chromium as the default browser and featured a blue and black theme to distinguish it from Peppermint One.

On June 10, 2011, Peppermint Two was released.[20] Combining aspects from the two previous editions, it packaged Chromium as its default browser alongside the Ice application for creating Site Specific Browsers. It was also the first edition of Peppermint to be available in both 32 and 64 bit versions.

On July 23, 2012, Peppermint Three was released.[21] Chromium stable repository was enabled by default; very light theme and default artwork; fewer default web applications in the menu ; it shipped with GWoffice; and GIMP 2.8 was added to the Peppermint repository.[22]

On June 13, 2013, Peppermint Four was released.[23] Peppermint Four was based on the Ubuntu 13.04 code base and used the LXDE desktop environment, but with Xfwm4 instead of Openbox as the window manager. Example games, Entanglement and First Person Tetris, were added. Also added were some metapackages for popular tasks such as graphic arts and photography to the Featured section of the Software Manager.[24]

On June 23, 2014, Peppermint Five was released.[25] “With this release we are getting ready for the future. The technology landscape is constantly changing, and we are always responding to meet our user’s needs. We are 100% driven to deliver an OS that is fast, secure, and available everywhere. Peppermint Five is another step in that direction.” - Shane Remington - COO of Peppermint OS, LLC

On May 31, 2015, Peppermint Six was released.[26] "Peppermint is excited to announce the launch of our latest operating system, Peppermint Six. Lightweight and designed for speed, Peppermint Six delivers on that promise whether using software on your desktop, online, or using cloud based apps. I want to take this opportunity to thank Mark Greaves, who stepped up and produced most of what you see here in Peppermint Six. Mark is now playing a major role here at Peppermint by leading the development team. I think you will be impressed by what he and the others have put together in Peppermint Six." - Shane Remington - COO of Peppermint OS, LLC

On June 24, 2016, Peppermint Seven was released.[27] "Team Peppermint are pleased to announce our latest operating system Peppermint 7, it comes in both 32bit and 64bit editions with the latter having full UEFI/GPT/Secure Boot support baked in, a new version of Ice (our in house Site Specific Browser framework) is also included with full Firefox web browser support as well as Chromium / Chrome." - Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) - Development Team Leader & Support Admin

The rest, as it is said, is history ;)
