Volume² - use the mouse wheel to change volume (Volume2)
« on: February 13, 2021, 04:58 AM »
I just saw that there is no thread about this little tool that I don't want to live without anymore! :D :-*

I love to be able to change screen (f.lux) brightness with the mouse wheel thanks to AutoHotkey, and Volume2 allows me to easily change the system volume with the mouse wheel (in user-defined areas along the screen's edge).

Volume2 has TONS of options, you can choose from many different tray icon options, there's a customizable OSD, Volume2 can reduce the volume to zero when you lock Windows, etc. etc.

I've used this utility for many many years.   :Thmbsup:

If there are any AutoHotkey users out there, this snippet will remap the two little side buttons on some mouses.

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. XButton1:: Send {Volume_Down}
  2. return
  3. XButton2:: Send {Volume_Up}
  4. return

Actually, as I look at it though... I think the 'return' lines might be redundant(?)  IDK

EDIT:  I just changed it in my master script, and the returns are apparently not needed. 

Code: Autohotkey [Select]
  1. XButton1:: Send {Volume_Down}
  2. XButton2:: Send {Volume_Up}

Live and learn   :D

Returns are not necessary if it's a single line of code which completes the command.

Nooooo, those are great for browsing and to navigate in Windows Explorer and other programs.  :Thmbsup:
