Windows 8–still no volume shortcut

Same plague as with previous version. No builtin method to raise or lower volume by keyboardcommands. Something I value since I need to be able to mute or lower volume when call comes in. Using the mouse isn’t effective.

So we still need to use same program as with Windows 7

3RVX

Download it here :http://matt.malensek.net/software/3RVX_2.5.msi

Then to put it autostart for Windows 8, use path : C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Just copy the shortcut from above Programsfolder.
I usually prefers to change the shortcut-keys to WIN+F11 = Lower, WIN+F12 = Raise, WIN+F10 = Mute. This because the default key is WIN+Mousewheel Up/Down which kind defeats the purpose of a KEYBOARD-shortcut…
