How annoying is the Windows volume control? Yes, we know that some of you are lucky enough to have fancy keyboards with volume control functions but the rest of us have to click on the little speaker icon and fiddle around with the slider. Not any more, Propellerhead has been playing around with a little freeware utility called Volume Tray. The icon appears in the System Tray and all you have to do is hover the mouse pointer over it then click the right or left mouse button to raise or lower the volume.
It’s highly configurable and does all sorts of other tricks, like setting hot keys for volume and mute, changing its appearance and making noises as you change the settings. Try it and you’ll never go near that darned speaker again! More great Windows tips, tweaks, hints and freeware can be found at PCTopTips
