Hi everyone,

There is someone ( a client from work) who asked me if it is possible to mute the microphone automatically when soundcard is playing an output and then to unmute when output stops.

This sounds like something that needs to be done via task scheduler or some sort of powershell script, but I really don't think they would want that.

This is probably not possible, but worth asking!

Thank you!

The only way you can mute the mic or any audio input on your platform(desktop or PC) is to open up sound manager or Realtek's Sound Manager App, if your client is working on a Realtek audio chip equipped sound card and disable it from from there. FYI, please don't tinker around with the underside of the OS, Windows 10 tends to go belly up if you mess around with powershell and the registry.

Thank you very much for the response!
