I would like an application that would change system volume to a desired level (like 20% OR 30%) on system startup.
and bring up a window telling me it did that and enable to easily change to another level.

thanks

I'm just curious.  Are you running XP?  I ask because I looked at a few functions of scripting languages(autohotkey and autoit) and they noted there is no global volume call for Vista and later in either.

I have tested it on XP, Win 7, and Win 8 64bit. Works on all 3.  :Thmbsup:

I take it you used a different programming language?  Or you came up with your own work-around?  I'm just curious because I don't have a laptop yet so I can start programming again.  Right now I'm stuck on public library machines.  I can't even right click a link, nevermind open Control Panel or (gasp) change a setting!!  Geez!!!  :)

@MilesAhead: The more recent AHK builds can do global volume control in Vista/W7.

There's also a UDF available for AutoIt.

Not working anymore. I reboot a few times. The app starts and it says "system volume set to 40%" but the volume is really 100%.

Hmm. That's odd. Did you do any windows updates, install anything new, anything like that?

I may have.  I might have run some cleaning apps like Wise cleaner or slim cleaner.
