    On-screen Position of Volume Control

    I'm using a Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000. When I hit a volume control button (mute, volume up, or volume down) an on-screen slider is displayed corresponding to the current system volume and what I am doing. How do I get the system to display this slider somewhere else on the screen. I can't drag it. None of the keyboard settings have anything to do with on-screen control positions.

    Hi, you might prefer an alternative approach.

    Install Volumouse (free). This allows you to alter volume by pressing a key or key combination and scroll the mouse. The slider appears wherever the moue pointer is.

    You can alter the screen brightness in the same way.

    Another program that is rather neat is 7+ taskbar tweaker. Select the appropriate option; simply hover your mouse over the taskbar and scroll to alter the volume. The slider appears above where the mouse is.

    Just search for these - easy to find.

    Thanks for all of the options. I'm testing out HideVolumeOSD. I'm liking it so far.

    HideVolumeOSD worked for a while, but then stopped working. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, no joy.
    I appreciate all of the other options, but really like having a dedicated keyboard button for mute.
    So, I guess I'll just get used to the volume OSD.
