    What do you mean command line ? Just click Disable . Helpful knew reasons why you are wanting and trying to do this. If you just unplug the Mic from an input it would be shown not connected. Usually do not have to disable it from here. Unplug it,best bet. No need to disable it, unless no other way or causing you issues. Software from Sound device has other options. Again, not knowing reasons for your question.

    There's a command line interface to device manager. But that approach would only work if your mic appears in Device Manager as a device.

    Do you see a device manager item for the mic? When you disable it as you do now, does the device appear disabled in Device Manager (usually with a red X icon) on the device

    Try to use NirCmd Command Reference I am not much found of commands.
    There seems to be an option to Mute Microphone or to reduce its volume to zero.

    The NirCmd's are not really great with Windows 7 and onward, i think they were more designed for XP but you can always try.
    NirCmd does require you to have extra files on your PC to reference.

    nircmd only mute my mic, i would like to disable it.
    i need a command line because i'll use it on prompt command.
    i have microphone on device manager, but disabling it does not affect microphone on recording tab.

    Have you tested the mic? Does it actually work when it's in disabled in Device Manager? (even though the green check is showing in the Sound control panel)

    If disabling the mic, actually does stop it from working? If yes, then right click the device in Device Manger->Properties->Details tab. Select Hardware Ids in the pull down menu. copy/paste the result into your next post
