Volume2 Comments

Absolutely amazing

about Volume2 · ·

I'd like to thank the developer of this app, he has developed it into perfection. I had been using the VolumeMouse for years but this exceeds everything. It looks great, it works great and it has all the options you can ever wish for.


It looks nice.

I installed it, chose English but it is in a different language. If i could switch it to English I'd love to try it out.

You can download new version with fixed this problem


Was good at first...

about Volume2 · ·

I loved Volume2 when I first found it and tried it. It had a ton of options and worked well. Unfortunately, over time I've noticed that it frequently just stops responding. The task is still running, and the taskbar icon is still there, but there's no volume adjustment.

I've had to repeatedly kill the task and restart it, and I'm lookingh for something more stable than that. 8(

Hi, try enable option Reload the hooks every 500 ms on tab System


Volume2 is better than 3RVX.

about Volume2 · ·

Volume2 works better than 3RVX.
3RVX causes NET.FRAMEWORK error messages.


Best at what it does, for simple setup

about Volume2 and 3RVX · ·

Better than 3RVX, which would sometimes show start menu instead of hot key working. Alt-tabbing would fix that problem, but Volume2 doesn't have any problems like this, and is much more customizable.

Tried AutoHotKey as well, and just didn't work out of box with the sample script on Win 7.

Have to change language in the 2nd option panel down from Russion (I suppose) to English.
