Microphone on Win 7

I have the mic. always on it seems (handy for Skype) and is annoying when not using it. How can I put an icon on the desktop which i can click to turn it on and off?

Have a look in Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices, find the box which says put Audio Icon on System Tray. You may then be able to right click on that icon and choose to Mute the mic.

As most PCs have their own differences, that is just a pointer for you! Hope it helps.

Yes, thanks I've done that but it's not direct I have to go to sound then configure the mic. to "off".
