Windows – Turn on mic only when key is pressed like a global push to talk (windows 10)

windows 10

Is there a built in way in windows 10 to have the Mic off until I press a designated key?

If not, how can I achieve this?

Best Answer

No, there is no built in way, default to Windows, to control your mic with a single key.

There are plenty of software options that add this feature, some may even do it globally, system wide.

I'd recommend using a mature tool such as AutoHotKey, which has sound functions such as controlling volume. Turning the mic volume all the way down is the same as turning it off: https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/commands/SoundSet.htm
