Although Windows 7 is developed to work as efficiently as possible but still there are some flaws in the operating system which sometimes annoy users like anything. These obnoxious behaviors of the operating systems although are not actually the flaws but are introduced in them on purpose to ease out the technical aspects whenever any conflicts occur. A good example for this can be the reduction of noise which automatically happens all of a sudden. When this happens no matter how high the volume level is increased the noise is still not clearly audible. Technically this feature is introduced in Windows 7 so that if any other hardware device is detected it is given the priority so that users can recognize its presence. But the matter of fact remains the same that in home environments these functionalities are not at all welcomed by the users and they are supposed to be disabled anyhow. As a Windows 7 home user if you want to disable this functionality you are required to follow the steps given below

  1. Logon to Windows 7 computer.

  2. Click on Start button and from the menu click on Control Panel.

  3. Click on Hardware and Sound category link.

  4. From the available list in next window click on Sound.

  5. On the opened box go to Communications tab and select Do nothingradio button.

  6. Finally click on Ok button to save the changes you made.
