    Creating shortcut to change volume in Windows 7

    I am using Windows 7 in my System. I always change volume from the speaker. I use old keyboard which does not have keys directly to reduce the volume. So, someone help me in creating the shortcut key to reduce the volume in Windows 7 System.

    o Download the "Volume" Shortcut
    1. Click on the Download button below to download the file below.
    Volume.zip
    2. Click on Save, and save the .zip file to the desktop.

    3. Open the .zip file and extract the Volume shortcut to the desktop.

    4. Right click on the Volume shortcut, and click on Properties, General tab, and on the Unblock button.
    NOTE: If you do not have a Unblock button under the General tab, then the shortcut is already unblocked and you can continue on to step 5.

    5. You can now Pin to Taskbar or Pin to Start Menu this shortcut, assign a keyboard shortcut to it, or move it where you like for easy use.

    6. When done, you can delete the downloaded .zip file on the desktop if you like, or save it to use again.




    OPTION TWO

    1. Right click on a empty area on desktop, and click on New and Shortcut.

    2. Copy and paste the location below into the location area, and click on the Next button. (see screenshot below)

    Re: Creating shortcut to change volume in Windows 7

    Hello dear friend,


    So you want to control your Windows 7 volume through a keyboard shortcut . There’s no obvious way to do this, but there is a simple way to do it and it doesn't require any 3rd party external software.


    1) click your start menu. Type ‘sndvol” in the search box at the bottom


    2) Right-click-drag the sndvol program icon to your desktop and select the ‘Create shortcuts here’ option


    3) Right click on the new shortcut and hit properties


    4) Go to the shortcut tab, and click inside the “shortcut key” box.


    5) Make your shortcut key combo. For example I use ALT + F12. Hit apply and OK to close the dialogue box.



    Hope the information will help you..


    Thank you..!!!

    Fn + right arrow -->>to increase the volume
    Fn + Left Arrow -->>to decrease the volume

    Thank u!!

    Should control your Home windows 7 size through the keyboard set secret.There is not any evident method to accomplish this, but there is a basic method of doing them and also doesn't necessarily demand just about any next get together outer software.

    click your start out menu. Style ‘sndvol” inside research package towards the end

    Right-click-drag this sndvol method icon for a computer and select this ‘Make strategies in this article'choice

    Right click on the modern secret colliding with components
