Hi All, great app (if I could get it to do what I wants)

My gaming headphones mic active/inactive light is broken so I wanted a solution which showed mic volume while in game so I knew whether or not my mic is muted.


I have got it working fine when in desktop but when I go into full screen game mode the OSD doesn't show up?


Anyone have any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong or does it just not work in game?

HI...I'm using the latest version of Volume2 (1.1.5.404). With windows 7 I didn't have this issue but when I am on the internet (Firefox browser), scrolling to raise or lower volume from the taskbar goes from 0-100 only. Nothing in between-no increments. But if I am playing a game or just not on the internet Volume2 works fine. I can can go anywhere from 0-100. I have a 3 32in.TV setup. If that helps. But like I said, didn't have this issue with Win7 at all. Can anyone assist?

Thank you for this wonderful application.  I have tried it tonight and it works very well, but my choice is to have it work using the mouse scroll wheel when the cursor is against the edge of the screen, and I can't seem to figure out how to set that.  The setting for 'Rotating a mouse wheel over...' does not give the option of screen border, only 'taskbar', 'tray', desktop', and some others.  Am I missing something?

Go to tab Screen edge and check Change volume... and set Control method to Scroll

verry cool program, verry useful :-)
Hi,
is it possible to bind a second mouse scroll to change the volume? I want one mouse to be used as standard mouse and on the second only by turning its wheel to change the volume.

Thanks,

I'm looking for something that will change the EQ preset on a per-app basis. When I play Counter-Strike, I want it to detect Counter-Strike is the foreground app and automatically set the Sound->Speakers Properties->Enhancements->Equalizer preset to my CS preset. When I play QuakeLive, I want it to set the EQ preset to QL. Can you make this app do this or recommend an app that does that?
I am going to have to give up on Volume2.   In addition to the inconsistency with IE now it won't work on my dual monitor system.  i have one monitor vertical and one horizontal.   V2 thinks that the top half of my vertical screen is at the screen edge.  So if my mouse is in the lower half of the screen the wheel will scroll up or down the page.  But if the mouse is at the top half of the screen the wheel changes the volume.   I have been using volume2 for perhaps a few years and really love the screen edge feature but in the past 4-6 months I've had nothing but problems.

Download  latest version 1.1.4.335

have been monitoring this for a almost two weeks.  During that time I have booted my system (some warm, but mostly cold boot) 18 times. Of those 18 times Volume2 has worked correctly only 4 times.  There was nothing different about the bootup or programs used after each boot.   But 90% of the time it doesn't work correctly.  I even rolled back to V2 version 1.1.2 and had the same problem.   

Again, the problem is that if Internet Explorer is the active window then Volume2 either turns up the volume to maximum or turns it to 0.  on or off.  nothing in between.   I have an HP Envy with an Intel i7-4770, igb RAM, 64 bit Win7 Pro,  Internet Explorer version 11.  All Microsoft updates are current. 
brand new HP Envy.  Intel i7-4770 quad core.  8gb ram,  Win 7 pro, SP1.   This morning I booted up and it's working fine.  @#$$%#$%.    from here on out, I will pay closer attention and check it each time I boot up taking notes each time.    
The problem has reappeared.   Don't know why.   Yesterday it was working correctly,  but this morning I booted up and it's back to the way it was...  IF IE (v11) is the active window Volume2 either turns the volume all the way up, or mutes it.  no inbetween.   to change the volume I have to click on the desktop or another active window.   I tried disabling some other programs that I though might have a conflict using MSCONFIG but nothing made a difference.     I have no idea what's causing it.    This morning I uninstalled the beta and installed ver 1.1.2.  same issue.   What program/service could be causing a conflict?

What is your system?

I take it back.  after a reboot, the beta seems to have solved the problem.... but I noticed that previously I could mute the sound with my middle mouse button .  the mute no longer works.  I have tried changing the settings with no luck.

Go to Settings tab Mouse and check Mute middle mouse button
loaded the beta but it didn't solve the issue.   It's still a problem.  
i have disabled the logitech software but still have the issue 
I've been using V2 for a long time.  i love this software but am having a problem.  Anytime IE11 is the active window,  the stepping simply goes from zero to full volume in one click.   if IE11 is in the background it works fine.  I don't know if this has an impact, but I am using a dual monitor setup.   the issue occurs no matter which monitor IE is in.  As long as IE is the active window, the program exhibits this behavior.

Do you have installed plugins for mouse in IE, maybe Logitech?
I've been using volume2 for a while without any issues but now all of the sudden it's not staying on top of any windows and I can't see it unless I minimize everything. Is there anything in the settings that would cause this?

You don't see OSD window? or program settings?
