Control your sound volume with your mouse wheel…

Have you ever tried to adjust the sound volume on your computer by clicking on the sound volume control icon in the system tray? Not very convenient, is it?  An option to try is Volumouse (by NirSoft).  This is one of those “must have” utilities that I have personally used since its’ inception.  Volumouse is a small utility that you install on your PC that will allow you to adjust and control your sound volume by scrolling the mouse wheel. Volumouse requires some easy configuration that will allow you to define a set of rules for determining when the wheel will be used for changing the sound volume,  For example, I have Volumouse configured to be used when I place my mouse pointer on my taskbar. When the mouse pointer is placed on the taskbar, I can adjust the sound volume up or down by using my mouse wheel (see below).

To get to the configuration window, you simply double click the Volumouse icon in the system tray following the installation.

There are also “plugins” available to enhance the functionality of Volumouse.

Additional Plugins

HideThisApp Plugin – Allows you to hide the active window by pressing a key combination, and showing it again by pressing another key combination.

MoveResize Plugin – allows you to resize or move the current active window by rolling the mouse wheel or by pressing a hot-key.

OpenCloseCD Plugin – allows you to open and close the door of your CD-ROM/DVD by rolling the mouse wheel or by pressing a hot-key.
