Using Audiobox USB with Windows 10, but I only hear mono L sound, no option to make the mic stereo or pan it in Windows Sound Settings. AudioBox USB does not come with software that I'm aware of for any kind of config. I want my mic to be centered or stereo instead of just in my left ear when using it for windows 10, discord, other apps other than DAWs

You should ensure that you install the current device drivers for your AudioBox.

Now, Windows native audio programs, like Discord, and others like Skype, can only use a "pair" of inputs.  So, when you set to inputs 1 and 2, and you only have 1 microphone connected, you will only hear/stream the mic on the left or right channel respectively.

You may need to use a 3rd party program that can "mono sum" the input channels to both input streams to your software.

Look into VB-Audio and VoiceMeter.
