  1. How can I add program to App volume and device preferences?


    I wish to mute the program vDos, but it does not appear on the App Volume and Device Preferences, how can I add this program to volume control so I can mute it? or Is there any other way to mute said app without turning off Master Speaker?


    The app itself does not a config option to turn off sound.

    :)

    How to add desktop shortcut to App volume device preferences?

    Thanks. That script opens the Device Properties page for the Mic - see attached screenshot. Any idea how the script can be modified to open the App volume device preferences screen?

    You can change the tab number on that script. In my case I've changed from 6 to 7 and worked.

    How can I add programs to the All Apps start menu list?


    Please elaborate on I was unable to get it to recognize a new folder

    Do you mean
    the folder did not appear in the Start list
    - or -
    you could not create the folder

    I add folders and shortcuts to the Start menu regularly. Once I figured out the time stamp thing (a new object shows up, a copied object might show up).

    Please follow these steps exactly and post any problems you run into when they happen.

    1. Open Control Panel (View by: Small icons)

    2. Right click Indexing Options in Control Panel
      Select Create shortcut
      answer Yes when the dialog window tells you that the shortcut cannot be created here ....
      There should now be an Indexing Options shortcut on your Desktop

    3. Launch File Explorer
      Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
      Create a new folder named 10test
      Open the new 10test folder in File Explorer
      Drag the Indexing Options shortcut on your Desktop to the new 10test folder

    4. Open Start - the 10test folder should be at the top of the list and the Indexing Options shortcut is inside that folder.

    That is the process I use.

    There were issues with Start in some of the earlier Preview builds, but I haven't seen those in the Retail release.

    If I recall, pinning something from the list to Start seemed to wake up the process. Try that if you don't see the 10test folder in the menu list.

    That's about all I can think of.
