    Quick way to mute/unmute system volume? Something like a keyb shortcut

    Anyone how I can setup one? Wish MS had a quick short-cut for muting / unmuting volume.

    Thanks in advance for any help you are able to provide

    A quick way to turn on or off or alter the volume.
    Click on speaker on taskbar (bottom right hand corner), then click on speaker itself on popup to mute, or move slider to suit volume.

    I've got a microsoft keyboard, ergonomic split type (forget the proper name), it has lots of buttons on the top for common stuff. The mute buttons (and all the rest) have alway just worked.

    Natural keyboard, with extra buttons at the top, just like this:
