You can put Automuter to the test by getting a free 15-day trial version. Download the AutoMuter installer (a small ≈1MB executable that you can get by clicking this link), run it, follow the instructions presented by a setup wizard, and mere moments later you will be done with the installation process. You will then be presented with a prompt that tells you that Automuter will automatically launch at startup.



By default, when you double click the Automuter system tray icon you will be presented with the Settings menu. Here are some screenshots so you can see what options you can play with:

Automuter Settings – Basic



Automuter Settings – Advanced



Automuter Settings – Media Players



Automuter Settings – Schedule



The application’s muting capabilities can be divided into two categories:
  • Manual – mute the sound on-demand, by using a hotkey or by using the system tray icon.
  • Automatic – automatically mute the sound when the PC is locked, when the screensaver starts, when the PC is shutdown, or based on a schedule.
