Is there a way to mute the sound from only certain applications? I can be listening to music and want everything else silent, but not have the option in certain programs. Does Windows have a way to block sound from individual applications?

Hi beethoven!

Yes there is a way to disable sounds in programs. What you need to do is create a shortcut on your desktop for the program (if you don't already have one) and then right-click the shortcut and select PROPERTIES. Then in the target field, you will add a space after the right most quotation mark and then -nosound and then click APPLY and OK. Here's an example of how I would do it for World of Warcraft if I didn't want it to play any sounds:

"C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Launcher.exe" -nosound

Thanks! How about with internet windows? I already have a few opened and one needs to be muted. Can it be done when it's already loaded or do I need to perform that change beforehand? Would all browser windows need to be closed?
