Windows 10: How To Set System Volume To Specific Level With Keystroke

    How To Set System Volume To Specific Level With Keystroke

    I keep my system's volume level set to 30%. Sometimes, I need to adjust this for one reason or another. After doing so, I'd like to be able to press a keyboard shortcut to set it back to 30%. Is there an easy way to do this? Maybe an AHK or FastKeys macro?

    I know I can do this to adjust the volume up or down - I already have keyboard shortcuts for those functions. But I want one to set the volume to 30% with a single keyboard shortcut.

    TIA for any help!

    Hi, looks pretty straightforward in Autohotkey:
    SoundSet, 50 ; Set the master volume to 50%

    - and note result in Errorlevel

    Great - if you're interested, Volumouse and 7+ taskbar offer scrolling control of volume (free).
