A simple volume slider with a mute button for Rainmeter.

Inspired by Alex Becherer's Voluminous.

Light and dark version included.

Thank you very much, perfect!

I realize this is an older skin, but it's new to me -- and it's perfect for my screentop.

Thanks for sharing.

I recommend you should add this code to change volume by scroll mouse button. This's very heplful :)

MouseScrollDownAction=[!CommandMeasure "MeasureWin7Audio" "ChangeVolume -10"][!Update]
MouseScrollUpAction=[!CommandMeasure "MeasureWin7Audio" "ChangeVolume +10"][!Update]

Thanks for the tip. I actually do use that but I haven't uploaded any skins I've made in a long time. I'll probably upload some new ones soon.

Do you know a skin or how to make a skin that can change the volume of a microphone?
esnooze's avatar
No, never heard of such a skin. Try looking at the Rainmeter forums. They might have something like that.
No prob with it! I am depserately searching for a skin to modify the "windows sound mixer" (y'know, with the indicator for each software -Itunes, internet...-) i even tried to make it myself but.... Any idea?

You're trying to modify the appearance of the windows volume mixer?
i try to get the volume mixer as a skin, and not just the windowed standard form. Having it on my desktop would be way better.

Ohh you mean like making a Rainmeter skin of the Windows Volume Mixer.. So that you can control the volumes of your speakers, itunes, chrome/browser, and etc. through Rainmeter?
EXACTLY!!!! But I don't know if the plugins adviable for rainmeter can actually do this...

esnooze's avatar
It might be possible but I haven't seen or heard anything like that so far.. Sorry. I'm guessing you'll need a new plugin for it, or it might work with the Win7AudioPlugin but I'm not sure. Good luck with this though. Let me know if you come across a solution/answer to this!
Okay, if i get more time i'll try to make a plugin on my own if this doesn't work with others... i'll tell ya if i got some news :-)

first of all, your style is awesome. simple and smart. 1 thing i would say, the yellow bar looks nice on dark, but with the light variant, an electric blue would look great aswell ;)
esnooze's avatar
And yeah you're totally right. That shade of blue would look nice and it would actually kinda match, too.

I just might have to take your advice on the color..

how can i install it ?? 
esnooze's avatar
Go to the Rainmeter website and download Rainmeter first.

After you've installed Rainmeter, just open the skins that you've downloaded and Rainmeter will install it for you.
This is a useful little device. Thank you! Look at my screenshot - it suits my desktop. Let me ask you if it could be possible for me to change the bar`s colour (to suit my wallpaper) for a brown or strawberry one? The screen - my desktop. Please.

Thanks. Glad you like it. Well it is definitely possible if you have something like photoshop but it would be quite a hassle since you'd have to change the color of each image (there's 100 of them). 
esnooze's avatar
Wait, there's actually a really easy way to change the color. 

Go down to [MeterProgress] and add ImageTint=255,0,0 and that should change the yellow progress bar to red. If you want a different color, you can always change the value of it. 

Sorry, I totally forgot about this code. 

Hope this helps.
