Find a quick and smart way to mute an entire program running on Windows 10.
In general, no one has only one program open on a computer. You usually run two and three together. But with all these open programs playing audio and video at the same time, things can get a little annoying. Especially if you have a program open like a web browser, which has many tabs and it is not immediately clear who is playing music.
Imagine that viber is ringing on your computer and you are looking to see which of all the programs you need to stop playing audio. Therefore, it is important for someone to be in control of the sound sources. Today, we will show you how you can manage the volume of any program running on Windows 10 your computer, either to reduce it or to increase it or shut it down completely.
How to mute a program in Windows 10
Step 1: Go to the Windows 10 taskbar by right-clicking the volume icon.
Step 2: From the list of options, select “Open volume mixer”
Clicking on Volume Mixer will open such a window in the lower right corner of the screen, which will display the various programs that you are running on your computer.
Here, as you can see, I run Google Chrome, Firefox and Viber together. In this window you can mute any program you want with one move.
Please note that when playing with Google Chrome or its affiliate program, these changes will apply to Chrome as a whole and not to any particular window or tab.
If you have an external audio device connected to your computer via Bluetooth or the headphone jack, you can also change the volume for it. All you have to do is go to the "Device" section in the Volume Mixer window, where you will find a drop-down menu of all the audio devices you have connected to your computer (a Bluetooth speaker, in this case) and click on the device you want to mute or change the volume.
If you think the volume mixer is not good enough for this purpose, there are many free Windows applications that provide this service and some additional features.
In this case, try it SoundVolumeView from Nirsoft. It is a free software that has a clean and minimalist user interface, with very direct functionality. When you open the tool, you get a list of programs running on your computer. You will find a number of options such as File, Volume, Edit, etc. at the top of the window.
This tool makes it a little easier to mute your device programs because it offers many keyboard shortcuts for it.
We hope this post was able to help you understand how to post in silence easily, a single program on your Windows 10 computer.
