Trying to make volume controller of every application on Win10

Post by f333t » 23 Sep 2020, 02:03

Hi everyone! I have been searching for a app that controls every application's volume level like while playing a game I want to decrease or increase volume level of discord. I tried many scripts but non of them worked. I learned some key binds like f11 & Volume_up:: send {Volume_Up}, however it controls main volume. So I need your helps to figure out how to make volume control of specific applications..

No, it was introduced with Vista, and should still work with Win10 (although it's not necessarily beginner-level stuff).

I'm sure that there is a direct and elegant way to handle it. Could check out the app mentioned earlier. If you want to avoid more programming, NirCmd has some great and easy command-line tools for working with sound. Also: https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/sound_volume_view.html

sound volume view kinda works for now. Only problem is keybinding..

You could just assign a key to run a routine that uses that command-line program.

As an update your solution is working great, thank you so much. I'm using autohotkey as a keybinder right now. If anyone intereseted I can explain every single detail.

Could you give me some insight on how did you manage it? Would be lovely!
