trying to add back an audio device

I was having problems with an audio device yesterday. In my attempts to get it working, I tried to disable it and then I was going to reenable it. However after disabling it, it completely disappeared from my list of audio devices. So I can no longer use it. How do I add it back?

Right click on an empty space on the list. Check "Show disabled devices".

Thanks. That was really easy. I don't know why I couldn't figure it out myself.

Does this option becomes visible only after a device is disabled? I don't see it on right-clicking on the list.
