    How to Enable or Disable chrome.exe Volume Control and Hardware Media Key Handling in Google Chrome


    Starting in Google Chrome 75, you can enable or disable the Hardware Media Key Handling flag for using media keys on your keyboard to control the active media session.

    For example, if you press the Volume Up, Volume Down, or Mute media keys on your keyboard, you will see chrome.exe media controls (Reverse, Play/Pause, Forward) next to the volume control on your desktop that you can use to control the active media session in Google Chrome.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the chrome.exe Hardware Media Key Handling and volume control feature in Google Chrome for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
