Lowering volume when muted causes instant unmuting RRS feed

  • Question

  • When the volume is muted, and you press the function key to lower the volume or click on the pointer that comes up from the volume tray icon, the volume instantly becomes unmuted, causing it to be much louder than you wanted. Would be much better for the computer to leave muting on while you lower the volume. A Sony TV I have works this way. It is fine to have muting instantly go off when you raise the volume, because you won't have the volume louder than you want it, so it won't be disturbing.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place.  I guess it is really a suggestion to Microsoft.  I don't intend to write my own mixer or player.  I probably will try to find a better place to post it.  From what I have seen, the Microsoft Connect forum is the best place to post suggestions, if an appropriate place can be found where Microsoft is accepting suggestions.    I guess this should be considered the final answer to this question for the purposes of this MSDN forum.
