Application specific volume control in Windows 7


Windows 7 comes with a sparkling new feature to control the volume of specific applications running on your system. Now you can either boost up or silence the volume level of any application without interfering the Master volume of the system. It implies, you can set different volume levels for specific running programs on Windows 7 PC.

Change volume levels of an application

1. On the taskbar pane to the right, left-click on the volume icon and click on Mixer

2. Now with an application running such as Youtube in Mozilla browser, you can change the volume levels shifting volume pane.

Now without having any hindrance with the Master volume, one can easily manage the volume levels of various application running on a Windows 7 system.



  1. I don’t know who you are, but THANK YOU!!! I just spent over an hour trying to figure out what the hell was wrong with my Windows Live Movie Maker because there was no sound all of a sudden. I searched over an hour, at so many different forums to no avail and finally found my answer here. It seems my 4 year old had been playing with the volume control. Who knew I could change the volume only for that application (well, apparantly my 4 yr old did). Thanks again!!!
