Display, Change, Save and Restore sound levels, with SoundVolumeView
SoundVolumeView is a small, free and simple utility that displays information and volume levels for the active sound components of your system, allowing you also to mute or unmute them. SoundVolumeView lets you save a sound profile into a file, containing the current volume level and the mute/unmute state of all sound components, as well as the default sound devices. You can load this file to restore volume levels and settings. There is also extensive command-line support, which allows you to save/load profiles, change current volume of every sound component, and mute/unmute them without displaying any user interface.
The program doesn’t require any installation process or additional dll files. In order to start using it, simply run the executable – SoundVolumeView.exe. In the main window you can select one or more items, to mute, unmute, increase, or decrease volume, using accelerator keys: * Mute – F7 * Unmute – F8 * Mute/Unmute switch – F9 * Decrease volume 1% – Ctrl+1 * Increase volume 1% – Ctrl+2 * Decrease volume 5% – Ctrl+3 * Increase volume 5% – Ctrl+4 * Decrease volume 10% – Ctrl+5 * Increase volume 10% – Ctrl+6
You can save and load sound profiles by using the ‘Save Sound Profile’ and ‘Load Sound Profile’ options under the File menu, or by using the /SaveProfile and /LoadProfile command-line options. There is also a recent menu located under the File menu, allowing you to easily load the last 10 sound profiles. You can also load the recent 5 sound profiles from the tray menu (if the tray icon is turned on)
Be aware that sound profiles are bound to a specific computer and its devices. You cannot save a sound profile in one computer and load it in another computer. The program will not save or restore the sound “scheme” of your system, i.e. the sound effects corresponding to various system functions.
