    I would like to create a shortcut (like Ctrl + F11) to open Windows volume bar and access to spotify volume manager.

    Volume bar

    I found some way to manage volume (like this one) but that's not what I want.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. 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
    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.

    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)

    There are times that some shortcut icons from the taskbar may be not working properly due to corrupted system files. Regarding your concern with the Volume bar that doesn’t appear upon clicking the icon, may we know if there were
    updates or changes that made to your computer prior to the issue?

    Also, we’d like to know the build and version
    of Windows 10 that’s installed on your device. To get this information, please type
    winver in the Search box from the Start.

    In the meantime, we recommend that you run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter. This tool is usually used to fix some issues that you’ll with the Volume Control. Go to
    Control Panel > Hardware and Sound >
    Hardware and Devices. Click on the troubleshooter and follow on-screen instructions.

    Another troubleshooting step that you can try is performing an SFC
    (System File Checker) scan. It search for any corrupted system files and repair it automatically. Here are the steps:

    • Type Command Prompt in the Search box from
    • Right-click on the result and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter sfc /scannow and press Enter to execute the command.

    Note: The scan may take around 10-15 minutes and wait for it to be completed.

    Once you’re done with it, try to click again the volume icon and see if it will already allow you to adjust its volume from there.

    We’ll wait for your update after trying the steps.
