Can we get the event of disabling microphone from device manager or somewhere else into app in runtime? Or, disconnecting microphone from device event?

    Hello,
    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Can we get the event of disabling microphone from device manager

    Sure, you could use DeviceWatcher to detect this, if you disable microphone device , DeviceWatcher Removed event will be triggered.

    For example

    var watcher = DeviceInformation.CreateWatcher(DeviceClass.AudioCapture);  
    watcher.Updated += Watcher_Updated;  
    watcher.Added += Watcher_Added;  
    watcher.Removed += Watcher_Removed;  
    watcher.Start();  
    
    
    private void Watcher_Removed(DeviceWatcher sender, DeviceInformationUpdate args)  
    {  
        // will be triggered when disable audio capture device.   
    }  
    
    private void Watcher_Added(DeviceWatcher sender, DeviceInformation args)  
    {  
    
    }
