    Hi, you could create a shortcut making use of this, for example:
    Mute and unmute microphone from command-line on Windows

    Is muting the Microphone the same as Disabling it?
    I can mute it on my key board, but that only stops someone from hearing me, I can still hear them?

    Just wondering for I want to make sure I can quickly Disable/Enable the Microphone?

    Hello,

    You could see if creating enable and disable REG files from option 5 below may work for this. You could keep them on your desktop to use.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to reply.

    Please note: you don't 'hear' through the microphone. That's something different to what you asked about e.g. headphones.

    'Mute'= 'no sound is sent from your microphone' in this instance.

    And you wished to enable it again - unmute it. Not to permanently disable it so it can't be used without difficulty.

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    If you want to hear nothing --- no game sound, no friend's voice chat --- then mute your own headphone volume.

    If you want to mute your friend's microphone --- then go to your friend's house and mute his microphone.

    the number you showed not in the registry. also unless i am missing something here, these are all ways to disable the microphone. I know how to disable it, but I need a quick way maybe from the desktop or taskbar to Enable or Disable it instantly? Thanks

    Create a desktop shortcut to a script that will toggle between "Enabled" and "Disabled".
    The shortcut can be pinned to the taskbar.

    You have been provided with the information you need to be able to create a shortcut.

    Two ways in my post #2. Caveat: I've not tried these myself.

    Is the problem that you don't know how to create a shortcut making use of this information?


    I did a quick search for you. Here are some instructions using a different utility:
    How to mute microphone on Windows 10 with keyboard shortcut

    Here's the search I did for you:
    create a shortcut to mute microphone


    Now you have 3 possible ways. And I'm sorry, it does mean you have to do a little work.

    Do you know what the script is? Thanks
