sure to use the right search terms - I had been there before.
Yeah, extensive options makes it hard to find the one you're after.
Took me years, literally, to even find the menu option, because I
didn't understand what it did. I thought it needed to be set to the
true nature of the input, but not so.
download "foobar 2000" it is free ,go to preferences\playback\DSP
Managers\dowmix channels to mono and apply every thing will be mono.

you get a choice for "speaker setup". My standard is "desktop stereo
speakers" but there is also a "laptop mono speakers" setting. I'm not
really sure what it does, but might be worth a try. It seems there are
individual settings for devices, in my case three, line out jack, USB
soundcard, and routed through Totalrecorder.

doesn't match the actual device, at least for me. Don't know, maybe
I'll just buy something like the below that's supposed to do the
trick. It's just that I've gotten into my head there should be
another and quicker way.
I'd like one of those for my mp3 player anyway. Mine has a built in
radio receiver and I can set that to mono, but no such option for
mp3. This is even more irritating when you use earphones actually. I
mostly use my mp3 player on walks. I don't like to be totally cut off
from the surrounding sounds, so using just one ear plug is nice, but
then you only get half of the songs!
