I have been using this software for more than 01 year. Working flawlessly.
Thanks for making this awesome tool and making my computer life a bit more easier.

By the way, I've designed a OSD skin for Volume2. Pls check it out HERE
I used process explorer to search why some programs (dxtory for example) could not end correctly (they stay loaded in task-manager) and found out that volume2.exe uses about "33'000" handles on my system and seems to "load" (hook or whatever you call it) nearly every running process (exe) on my system not only once but a lot of times...  other programs only use 10-100 handles, but not 33'000... could this be a bug?

Yes, this is bug, and it will be fixed in the next version

Hi and thank you for this great utility !

What happened to you site (do you need a place to host it ?) and are you planning for any updates ?
irzyxa's avatar

how hard would it be to get this running on a mac?
irzyxa's avatar
This works only for Windows
Is there a way to disable the default volume changing gui so when i press f9 or f10 it shows the volum2 changing gui not default?
irzyxa's avatar
Yes, on tab System unchecked Volume
omg fucking awesome, been looking for this my whole life. Thats a win. Thank you very much. If I had money and a credit card I would give you some I found a clock that does what I want it to for XP too this week. I have never been so happy in my life.

Nice Application - Just needs some more fully supported themes (usb, brightness etc)

I take that back - it's only the Beta that has limited skins - I just added them from the release version and they work fine :)

Can you please add the ability for the Fn key as a keyboard shortcut for Brightness +(Fn + Up Arrow) - (Fn + Dwn Arrow)

Loving the flexibility of this application over other OSD applications

i downloaded normal windows instaler and vuala it works perfect,nice app :)

(i dont know why portable version dosnt work on my vista,maybe vista is blocking it somehow,its running in task manager but there is no icon in taskbar no posibility to open config or something like that)
