Mono sound output in windows 7
Okay this is annoying me :(
Got a shiny new PC for my office at work, running windows 7 Ultimate just like my previous machine.
However I normally listen to music (via Spotify) through an in-ear headphone, I use just 1 ear-bud so I can still hear knocks at the door, phones ringing and my colleagues talking to me.
I can't for the life of me find an option to set the sound output to mono. Somehow it works on my old machine (still windows 7) but I'm not sure if that's due to the on-board sound being different and maybe not as up to date. A Google search seems to bring up a few responses from Microsoft that its no longer an option in win7.
Is this an overlook from Microsoft? it makes single earpiece devices unusable for programs with no inbuilt mono support, and people who are hard of hearing in 1 ear would only hear one channel of audio as-well.
Just posting this in the long shot hope someone has come up with a solution.
