Windows 7 Volume mod for XP

By fediaFedia
Windows 7 Volume mod for XP

It's somewhat based on the so called "collaborative" Vista Volume mod 3.0 which is mostly my work, he didn't even change a thing from it, not to mention the bugs that i haven't fixed. So i have all rights to release my own work in my DA gallery.

This version has many changes including fixed bugs. The size of the mini volume is now bigger, just like in seven, there are also new images.

Changelog:

  • Optimized space between items making the window more compact

  • New "default" sound icon instead of windows flag

  • New sound button image

  • Higher mini volume control with other changes

  • Slightly moved mute checkbox

  • Added anti theft precautions


  • Translations:

    German: [link]
    Polish: [link]

    How to fix color:

    Desktop properties > Appearance > Advanced, select 3D objects from the list and change it's color to white, then apply.

    Enjoy!

    You've removed the balance sliders. This makes the Sound Mixer way less useful and is one of the main reasons why I despise its brother from Windows 7.

    Does this apply to other applications running at the same time?
    i.e. I'm running Chrome, and I have another application open that has an audio output. Would I be able to control what volume each program is at? Say, I want Chrome running loud whilst running a flash animation of some sort, while the application is at a lower volume?
