    Eliminate universal keyboard shortcut - 9 numpad opens sound mixer


    I use the numpad frequently for numerical data entry, and the other day, pressing the 9 key suddenly started opening the sound mixer utility. I now have to hold win+9 to type the number 9 from the numpad. I pulled my hair out trying to figure out where this originates from and found a program called Hotkey Detective that shows that explorer.exe apparently owns this mysterious new shortcut. Is there any way to edit/revert this sudden strange behavior of my numpad's 9 key?tl;dr - I would like to be able to press 9 on my numpad to type the number 9 againThank you!

    :)

    Whats the Keyboard Shortcut to Adjust Volume?

    Old thread appeared in searching for solutions how to set keyboard shortcuts to adjust Windows 10 volume. Dalchina's helpful pointers lead to finding yet another suitable up-to-date free app by grandmaster Nir Sofer : View / change sound volume on Windows 10/7/8/2008 from command-line or GUI

    Step 1: Fire up SoundVolumeView and find your sound device by selecting (un)mute with right mouse
    Step 2: Go to File menu> Create Desktop Shortcut> select Increase and select Decrease Volume 5%
    Step 3: Right click each shortcut> Properties> Shortcut to set preferred hotkey. E.g. + and - on numpad
    Step 4: Right click each shortcut again> Properties> General and tick Hidden - Apply - Ok

    Voila! Hopefully helpful to someone sometime (Y)

    Mixer Broadcast Not Working

    Hi CV Scaryseizure,

    Thank you for bringing this up. Let's try to isolate this issue so that we could figure out what causing the Mixer Broadcast not to work properly. Kindly provide us the following information below:

    • Can you tell us when did you notice this issue?
    • Do you use the Mixer Broadcasting app on Windows 10?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    In the meantime, I recommend that you sign out your account on the Mixer app then sign in again. If you still got the same issue, I suggest that you also reinstall the app to eliminate corrupted files.

    We look forward to your reply.
