    The master volume is stored in the registry location:
    Code:
    ...\#eSpeakerTopo\Properties\{7fb7b48f-531d-44a2-bcb3-5ad5a134b3dc}
    For example, this REG file sets the master volume to 100%.
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\DeviceClasses\{6994ad04-93ef-11d0-a3cc-00a0c9223196}\##?#HDAUDIO#FUNC_01&VEN_8384&DEV_7680&SUBSYS_83847680&REV_1034#4&31e60982&0&0001#{6994ad04-93ef-11d0-a3cc-00a0c9223196}\#eSpeakerTopo\Properties\{7fb7b48f-531d-44a2-bcb3-5ad5a134b3dc}\20000]
    @=hex(ffff1003):00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\
      00,00,00
    The key name may differ. You need to restart for changes to take effect.

    You may not be able to edit or open the `Properties` or `{7fb7b48f-531d-44a2-bcb3-5ad5a134b3dc}` key in `regedit`. Although you have the necessary access permissions, you may receive an error like this:
    Code:
    [Window Title]
    Error Opening Key
    
    
    [Content]
    {7fb7b48f-531d-44a2-bcb3-5ad5a134b3dc} cannot be opened.
    An error is preventing this key from being opened.
    
    
    [OK]
    This is because the key name is too long. You will have to temporarily rename the long key name to one character and then rename it back.

    Thank you both for the info!
    I was able to get the volume mixer by clicking on the system volume icon them clicking "mixer", however I was wondering if it would be possible to set up some sort of registry entry that would allow me to double click the volume icon and have it immediate open the volume mixer.

    I found that if I make a shortcut with the target "%windir%\System32\SndVol.exe -t 76611119 0" I can make it open where I want from a desktop shortcut but I was wondering if anyone could help me modify the registry so that I don't need the shortcut and can just double click the system sound icon to open the mixer.

    I also noticed when I examined the process with process explorer it listed this as the command line parameters: "SndVol.exe -r 77201237 0 {0.0.0.00000000}.{5fc3904c-eda2-46fb-b353-10e266407892}"

    I am thinking I might be able to get somewhere with that but I thought Id ask here to see if anyone could help point me in the right direction as I am not as experienced with the windows registry as I wish I was.

    - Thanks in advanced!

    Hello Geodripp, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I'm not sure how other than with a Volume Mixer shortcut like below.

    I would recommend to create a new thread in the Customization forum for this instead though.
