    Creating Custom Keyboard Shortcuts to Control Volume


    Ok, been looking for a potential solution all morning. I'm wondering, is there's a simple keyboard shortcut that either exists or one I can create to mute the volume of the current app I have open without having to open the volume mixer? It's just slightly annoying when you're listening to music in the background and an ad pops up in whatever game you have open. So, if there was a simple solution to press a quick button or combo of buttons to silence only the current window, that'd be awesome.


    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Keyboard Shortcut For Volume Control

    There is an information on how to create this shortcut posted here:

    https://www.google.com/search?q=win...e..69i57j0.23785j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    The problem I have is that unlike in Linux such a shortcut isn't working unless Volume Mixer icon on the taskbar is clicked upon.

    So volume slider pops-up, then this shortcut works. As a result: I still need to use a mouse.

    Can you, please suggest a way to create a keyboard shortcut to control Windows 10 audio volume (not an application audio volume), which won't involve using a mouse?

  3. Keyboard Shortcut For Volume Control

    Hello Lenny,

    To better assist you with your concern, I'd like to know the following:

    • Confirm which build is currently installed on your device. To check, follow the steps below:
    • Press Windows key + R, then type in winver.
    • Click OK
    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • Are you using a laptop keyboard or external keyboard?
    Adjusting the volume levels using the keyboard shortcuts depends if your device/keyboard supports media keys.

    Meanwhile, let's try creating a shortcut key for the Master Volume. Refer to the steps below:

    1. Right-click on an empty area on Desktop, then select
    New
    and Shortcut.

    2. Copy and paste the location below:

    C:\\Windows\System32\SndVol.exe -T 76611119 0

    3. Click on Next button and provide a name for the said Shortcut and click Finish.

    4. Right-click on it and select Properties.

    5. Assigned your desired shortcut key like F11 or F10 by just pressing it in the
    Shortcut key area.

    6. Click Apply and Click OK to save changes.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Regards.
