How to mute apps in Windows 10

mute Windows apps

If you want to know how mute apps in Windows 10 temporarily, an ideal option for when we are playing more than one video at the same time or even music on our computer. The first thing to keep in mind that all browsers can be silenced quickly without having to use this trick.

Muting a video that is being played through the browser on YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion or any other platform is as simple as click on the speaker shown in the tab where the video is playing. We will see how the audio will automatically be muted.

However, when it comes to an application, we have to carry out another process, it is not as intuitive but we have it just two mouse clicks away. The first thing we must do is access the Windows volume mixer, by placing the mouse over the volume icon and clicking the right mouse button.

This mixer shows us all the applications that we have open at that moment and they are playing some kind of audio. Through this option, we can raise or lower the volume independently of any application, but in addition, we can also silence them directly.

To silence applications we just have to click on the speaker icon. Automatically, this icon will begin to show with a forbidden signal, indicating that is completely disabled. In order to activate the sound, or modify the volume (in this menu we can do both) we just have to move the volume bar.

Once we close the application that we have silenced and reopen it, it will play the sound again, so if we were to be forced to silence it again, we would have to rcarry out the same process, a very quick and easy process.
