How to show Windows' Mixer volume bar?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Is there a way to show Windows' SndVol32.exe Volume Mixer without doing a pixel-coordinated click on the speaker icon in the tray?

I can't find a way.

Tried this one but the volume icon doesn't seem to be a tray icon. :)

(I'd like to call a script showing the volume bar whenever I hit the + / - multimedia keys on my keyboard)

In Vista sndvol.exe calls the mixer, but I don't know if that's all u'd like to know :)

Or SndVol32.exe ... hehe no.

I'd like the volume window to pop up by script. :(

Run('"C:\WINDOWS\system32\SNDVOL32.EXE" /t')
Nope... this opens the full mixer window... I just want the pop up (picture in the first post) you get when you click the speaker tray icon once... and which disappears as soon as you click somewhere else.

=> a visual feedback when turning up/down the sound volume with multimedia keys on the keyboard

It works in XP. I grabbed the command line by running Sysinternals Process Explorer, then clicking the sound icon. When I saw the new entry pop up in the list of processes I checked the properties to get the command line. Perhaps the command line is different in Vista or it may not even open a new process.

Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
