- Mute sound from other users in Windows 7 2 answers
We have a win 7 computer that is used by several family members and we use fast user switching to change accounts without logging each other out (It's set up to go to the select user screen after resuming from screensaver). However, often someone will accidentaly leave windows media player or a website playing sound. This is very irritating since it means you have to switch between all the accounts to find out who is playing music and attempt to stop it.
Is there a way to set up windows 7 to mute or pause audio playback when switching to another user?
