Customization :: Open Volume Mixer Instead Of Volume Control?
Nov 18, 2015
I was wondering whether it were possible to open the volume mixer instead of the volume control when left-clicking on the volume icon in the tray. At the moment I have it set to open the old classic menu, but not the volume mixer.
my game volume and my chat volume are mixed so that when I turn up my chat volume, my game volume also turns up. when I turn up my game volume, it doesn't turn it up, but when I turn up my chat volume, it turns up both my game and chat volume. How can I fix it so that my game volume and chat volume are different?
I just did a clean win10 install yesterday, everything works fine except for my audio sound volume. My device is compatible, it works just fine under Windows 8.1 but its way too small compared from my Windows 10 now.
So when i play music on Spotify while playing a game, my volume randomly goes up and down, It only stops if i mute all of the sounds of the game, i've looked and looked in all the settings, changed the communications tab to "do nothing" and it still wants to change my volume.
my laptop's volume simply isnt as loud as it is supposed to be, or has been in the past. all settings/ controls that i can find are turned to 100 percent. And i dont mean that i want it louder than 100%, im saying that the 100% that its on sounds like what should be 50-60%. I know that it has been able to be a good deal louder in the past. So i dont know whats wrong. I am in the military and have been away from my laptop for about 3 months, but everything seems to be up to date. It is to the point where its just not loud enough to enjoy/ use to play games or watch videos. And same thing for when i plug my headphones in, it isnt loud enough then either, sounds like what should be 50 or 60%. My laptop is an msi ge72 apache pro, and runs windows 10.
I know how to silence / turn off Win10 Notifications, but I kinda like them ... I just don't want that chime blasting out at a thousand decibels every time I get an email.
I have the master / system volume set at the level I want it for all my normal uses, but I consider the Notification chime to by annoyingly loud ... I still want a chime, but I want it to be very low key.
When I googled 'win10 notification volume' all I could find were instructions to silence it or turn it off, but nothing about adjusting the volume of the chime itself without changing the master volume.
Two weeks ago when I downloaded and updated to windows 10 I've been having some problems, mainly with sound. For example, in chrome if im watching a video and then pause it and then come back after a while, the volume is extremely high and the moment I decrease/increase it it goes back to the original volume level. I'm using the Realtek High Definition Speakers through my playback device and I've tried reinstalling/uninstalling audio drivers, tweaking playback device setting properties, etc. but none of them seem to work for me and the problem still persists. Not only that but the audio seems to sound really weird compared to when I had windows 8 when its on speakers and not on headsets/headphones.
I even asked my friend who had the same computer (Asus ROG G750 JX) and he said he had the EXACT same problem after upgrading to windows 10,I have even downloaded the new audio drivers from URL... that was on 8/25 and the volume still fluctuates every time i pause a youtube vid.
It was there yesterday and now it is missing, along with the battery icon. When I go to the properties panel those options are grayed out. Did i accidentally change a setting or something? Never had these problems with win 7 pro.
What the heck is going on with the volume in Windows 10? Randomly, after unpausing the sound, the sound will be incredibly loud. As soon as I adjust the volume (even just pressing the sound increase or decrease button once) the sound volume goes back to being as loud as it should be. It is extremely frustrating when I pause and unpause and then cant hear because I am now deaf.
I'd like my system sounds slider to stay at 10% of the overall volume. All other volume settings seem to stick. Windows rememebers my overall / winamp / browser etc. volume just fine. Only the system sounds revert to EAR-SPLITTINGLY LOUD at seemingly random times. Sometimes after a restart (but not every time), sometimes in the middle of a Windows session. Is this a known Win10 bug?
My max (100) volume on Windows 10 is about 40% of what it used to be on previous windows. I can barely hear anything on YouTube. I found about 5-6 topics on google discussing this, but none of the solutions worked. I've tried reinstalling the driver, tried changing the frequencies, nothing works. I have a DELL laptop.
After upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7 within the last week, everything was fine at first. Then this morning Everything on screen froze, and when I did a force restart, the following happened (and continues to happen ad nauseam):
Windows tries to boot as normal, but I get the BSOD saying Unmountable_Boot_Volume
It then restarts, saying it's going to repair the problem, only this time it flashes to a blue screen that says Chose Your Keyboard Layout. At this point I am unable to use either my mouse or keyboard. I've tried wireless, wired, all USB ports. Nothing.
I don't have Windows 7 disc (came pre-loaded from the factory), and I don't have a Windows 10 disc or flash drive. The only other computer I have to work with this is an old laptop running XP. I downloaded the Media Creation Tool, but when I try and run it on my XP laptop it says it's not a valid win32 application, so making a flash drive boot seems out of the question.
So im on windows 10 all is well except whenever i hit the Volume up and down button on my keyboard it appears on the left corner and i simply can't move it can i disable it from showing completely or move it by any chance ?
A week ago, I got a new ssd drive and used EaseUS ToDo Backup to clone my Win10 hdd to it. Windows actually worked great for a week on the ssd after this, but then I thought it would be safe to wipe the old hdd to use it for extra storage.
Now, if I try to boot the Win10 on the ssd, I get error messages about "unmountable boot volume". I've tried unplugging other harddrives to make sure they weren't interfering (they weren't), and I've tried using a Win10 install disc to both refresh and reset the Win10 ssd (both failed due to a missing partition).
I've used another computer to backup the Win10 ssd, so I'm okay with reinstalling, though I'm not sure about reactivation (I got this copy of windows as win7 from a used computer and upgraded it months ago, so I don't have the original box code.)
