You may recall a few weeks ago Propellerhead mentioned a little freeware utility called ‘One Click Volume that simplified the clunky Windows System Tray volume control, well, here’s an even better one, called Volumouse. Simply hold down the Alt key (or one of sixteen other actions) and spin the mouse wheel and the volume goes up or down.
You can also use it to control a variety of other functions from the mouse wheel, using four ‘Rules’ or presets and these include varying screen brightness and transparency, adjusting bass boost and a number of audio actions.
The download is tiny (just 38Kb for the Zip, or 78Kb for the self-installing version) and it takes only a few moments to configure. There’s scores of great freeware links and more PC tips than you can shake a stick at PCTopTips, so why not pop over and have a look?
