    Invididual application volume levels change on their own


    While using my computer, I can go days at a time without having to deal with this issue, which is what makes it even more frustrating when it does happen, as I don't know the cause.


    To begin, I'm on Windows 10, and while using my computer, I'll go to play music via Spotify, play a YouTube video in Chrome, or have a discussion with someone in Discord. Where everything was fine the last few times I'll have done these activities, every so often, the volume levels seem to have dropped dramatically. I'll right-click my volume icon in the taskbar, click on "Open Sound Settings", and then click on the option for "App volume and device preferences". Under here, there is the option to have application specific volume levels, and even though I'm constantly maxing them all out to 100%, somehow, they will have been lowered to like 10-20%. The frustrating part, is that it's not all of the applications. Just 1 or 2 out of the list, again, usually Chrome, Discord, Spotify, for my iCUE software for my Corsair headset.


    Steps I've taken to resolve this are making sure that each of these application are all up to date, making sure my device drivers are all up to date, going in to my "Sounds", going to the "Communications" tab, and making sure to check the "Do nothing" option under the option for "When Windows detects communications activity:". None of this seems to help, and as I stated previously, I haven't been able to find any kind of commonality between when it happens.


    I thought I had found an article relating the issue to Discord, but it was just referencing the "Do nothing" option I mentioned above. It did also make mention of Attentuation in Discord itself, but I have that feature disabled.


    Is there something else I'm missing, or a way to disable application specific volume levels so that I can just have 1 master volume control? That' pretty much what I do anyways, as I max out all my application volumes.


    Thanks

    :)

  2. No volume bar when changing volume level and changing brightness causing lag

    Microsoft has changed level for volume to show on "horizontal level" not vertical. Click "speaker icon" on taskbar and volume level will appear. Right click on speaker icon will give you access to "open volume mixer"

    You might use "SFC /scannow" in command prompt-admin

    open command prompt-admim, type "SFC /scannow" enter

    after it finishes.

    restart pc (this step is important....since fixes occur after restart)

  3. No volume bar when changing volume level and changing brightness causing lag

    Hi Trawel,

    We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.

    The option for brightness and volume indicator will automatically show on the Windows graphical user interface.

    If you face the issue with volume and brightness indicator settings, it may have caused because you are using the ASUS system utilities. I suggest you to open the ASUS system utilities and disable the volume and brightness
    indicator and any other Windows related functionality. It is better to disable the ASUS system utility temporarily and check if it is the cause to the issue.

    Please be informed that Microsoft has changed level for volume to show as
    horizontal level bar not as vertical bar in Windows 10. Click "speaker icon" on taskbar and volume level will appear.
    I hope the above information helps.

    Kindly try the below steps to repair any corrupted files of Windows components and check if it helps.


    • Press Windows + X keys on the keyboard, select the
      command prompt (admin).

    • Type the following commands one by one and hit Enter key.

      Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      Sfc /scannow

    Note: If you are not able to repair some files after performing SFC scan, I suggest you to refer to the point 3 “Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details
    are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log”. Under the section “Run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe)”
    to repair the corrupted files after performing SFC scan.

    Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929833

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Invididual application volume levels change on their own

    Change volume level of .mp3?

    I recorded the Trigun theme to use for Alien Swarm's feature where you can add your own music for heavy action rather than using the in-game music, but it's not loud enough compared to my other music. I need to boost the volume level of it somehow. I already recorded it at 100% volume, so that's out of the question.
