    Is there a way to disable per app volume control?


    Good day all, I'm running Windows 10 and I'm wondering if there is a way to disable per app volume control, or in lieu of that locking certain apps to the main system volume?

    As you can see in the picture each program I have has its own volume setting. This would be OK except Chrome constantly gets left softer than my other programs so I constantly have to open the volume mixer and set it to the correct level. I'm hoping there's a way to disable this.

    Thanks for your time.

    Mine works okay with one or two muted.

    If settings don't work for you there's always the multimedia keyboards that have a Mute key along with volume controls, I use a Microsoft Keyboard, easy to just hit the key when not wanting sound.
