Tip of the Week: Easily Alter Individual App Volumes in Windows 10
When you’re in the thick of the workday, you’re likely to miss a notification, especially with so much media playing all at the same time. To make sure that your notification sounds don’t get drowned out by your other applications, we’ve put together a tip on how you can adjust the volume levels of your individual applications in Windows 10.
The first step is to open up your sound mixer.
How to Open Your Sound Mixer
You can right-click the volume control icon in your toolbar to open the volume mixer. This is a notable trick because it bypasses the master volume control.
You should see a small window open up displaying the different applications you might have open. There will also be an option to adjust the volume of your device in general. This window gives you direct control of the volume for not only any applications you have open, but for all system notifications as well. This means that you can customize the volume for apps like your VoIP solution, web browser, or other media applications.
After playing around with it for a bit, you’ll discover the perfect mix that best enables you to catch the important notifications that come in.
