    So, is it possible?

    Thanks.

    I had made a post asking about this as well, before I noticed you already had a thread, let me know if you found anything useful. I am still searching.

    At the moment I just use autohotkey. When I press Win+V the volume mixer will open to a specific location on the screen.

    But I think you're onto something with your thread.

    I have Win7 on a Gigabyte motherboard and Win10 on another Gigabyte motherboard, both have onboard Realtek Audio and
    right-clicking the speaker icon on both gives a choice to Open Volume Mixer.

    I use to have the ability to do that but I was trying to bypass having to right click or click twice. During my testing and exploration I seem to have broken the system tray icon. Now I can not click it to open the master volume nor does right click "open volume mixer" work.

    I can however still run sndvol.exe from system32 verifying my theory that explorer.exe somehow uses a shortcut of sndvol with a -f flag.
    Is there anyone with registry experience or some idea of how to dig up what explorer.exe is using to store its system icon properties?

    Yeah, we know that. The point of this thread is bypassing that.
