Have to be half a centimeter from microphone to be heard in recording

Good day, folks.

I have a problem with my Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga X380. It’s brand new, and I have had no trouble with it except for this.

In order for Voice Recorder or Audacity to hear me talking normally, I have to be about 2 inches/5 centimeters to be heard. Otherwise, I practically have to shout. What can I do?

Are you facing this issue in Windows? If yes, does it happen with every kind of application? You could adjust the mic in the control panel.
