    Easy enable/disable microphone?

    My bro just got a microphone and I was wondering if there's an easy way to enable or disable it. I know you can right click on the volume icon, click on select recording devices then select the microphone, then click properties, then click on levels, and mute it - but that's just way too many steps, I'm looking for a more obvious and much easier way to do it.

    how to disable microphone icon in system tray

    How do I get a microphone icon to display on the system tray?

    Hi Paulo,

    This is Wil, one of the independent advisor, an expert with Windows 10 and a fellow Windows 10 user like you. I understand your concern about the Microphone icon on the system tray.

    Do note that the Microphone will only work if there's an application open that uses it like Skype, Zoom, or WebEx. Therefore, the icon would only appear on the system tray if such an application is open and there's an ongoing call on it. Rest assured that Microphone
    will not work without any application that uses it. But you may also check if the Microphone icon is enabled on the settings. Kindly follow the steps below.

    1. Click on Windows button and click on Settings (gear icon)

    2. Click on personalization and click on Taskbar

    3. Click on Turn System Icons on or off and make sure that the Microphone is toggled to ON.

    I hope the information I provided will help you. If you need further assistance please do reply back and I will respond as quickly as possible. Have a nice day.

    Thanks,

    Wilfred P.
