Set Keyboard Shortcuts to Adjust Volume of Your PC

Most of the keyboards we buy these days have dedicated keys to adjust volume with a single button press. But if you happened to be using a keyboard that does not have dedicated keys for adjusting volume here is a simple freeware application that helps you.

The freeware application VolControl from boredomsoft.org allows us to set a combination of keys for easily decreasing, increasing and muting volume. By default it configures the keys Win + Up, Win + Down and Win + Left for increasing, decreasing and muting volume respectively. If you don’t like the default settings, you can always  change them by using settings user interface of the application.
