The Volume Mixer in Windows allows you to change the volume level for individual devices and apps.

Starting with Windows 10 build 16193, the Volume Mixer will now include UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps (ex: Microsoft Edge, or Groove Music), so you can set their volume without impacting the overall system volume. UWP apps will only appear in the Volume Mixer once they start playing sound for the first time.

This tutorial will show you how to adjust the volume level of individual devices and apps without impacting the overall system volume for your account in Windows 10.

  • Option One: Change Volume Level of Individual Devices and Apps from Volume Mixer
