How to control the volume of your PC with your mouse wheel?

5/5 - (41 votes)

Hey there!

Have you ever thought it would be cool to be able to control the volume of your Windows computer simply with your mouse? I’m sure you have (or maybe not).

That’s why today I want to introduce you to Volumouse, a small utility developed by Nirsoft to control your system’s volume simply by using your mouse wheel!

Volumouse allows you to set up the right shortcuts to decrease or increase the volume. For example, you can configure it so that the scroll wheel + the Alt key pressed will lower or raise the volume. This can also be when the left mouse button is pressed or when the mouse cursor is on the taskbar only…etc.

And of course, when the conditions you have defined are not met, your mouse continues to work normally. The utility works on all versions of Windows from Windows 98.

However, be careful if you are using Windows Vista / 7 / 2008 / 8 / 10 / 11: if UAC is enabled, Volumouse will not work with applications that you run as an administrator. If you want Volumouse to be able to capture mouse events from an application that you run as an administrator, you must also run Volumouse as an administrator.

The software is available for free, as I told you, on the Nirsoft website. How convenient!!”
