How to mute headphones mic while recording a webinar

I'm trying to figure out how I can get Camtasia to NOT record sounds into my headphones mic on my Windows PC while I'm listening to my online webinar class. I have to be able to use the mic when it's my turn to interact in the class. But when I am just listening, I need to type notes without the sound of my typing being picked up in the mic. Is there any way to mute the headphones during the recording? Or is there some other way I can mute the sound while I am just listening to the class while recording?

Many Headset Microphones have a button on the cord that one may press to mute. I'm guessing yours isn't one of those. ;)

When you record, you should end up seeing a dialog similar to below:

So one way to effectively "mute", is to quickly drag the volume slider to the left as far as it will go.

Then to return, drag it back.

Cheers... Rick :)
